How does the Uzbek president measure up to China's leader?

Chinese President Xi Jinping is 180 centimeters tall. Standing to Xi's left is Uzbek President Islam Karimov, who is 170 centimeters tall.
Below are photographs from Uzbekistan's national news agency Uza.uz and Russia's RIA Novosti news agency (in both pictures, Karimov is standing on the far right, directly beside Xi):
