The message reads, in part:
”Over the past twenty years, Tajikistan has achieved notable successes in socioeconomic spheres and strengthened its international standing.
Significantly, during this period our countries' traditionally friendly, mutually beneficial, and equitable relations have developed in accordance with the tenets of strategic partnership and alliance.
I am convinced that the recent Russian-Tajikistani summit will act as an additional stimulus for bilateral cooperation in various fields, as well as in regional and international affairs, especially in light of the outcomes of the summit of the Commonwealth of Independent States. This is in the interests of our peoples and will further promote peace and development in Central Asia.“
