The discussion covered current issues concerning the further promotion of friendly bilateral relations, developments in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone and Belarus, as well as settlement prospects in Afghanistan.
Earlier, Vladimir Putin sent his greetings to Emomali Rahmon.
The message reads, in part:
“You rightfully enjoy high respect among your compatriots and notable international reputation as an experienced and far-sighted politician and a true leader to your country. Under your presidency, Tajikistan enjoys socioeconomic development and plays an important role in regional affairs.
It is difficult to overestimate your personal contribution to strengthening relations of strategic partnership and alliance between our countries and promoting mutually beneficial ties within the CSTO, CIS, SCO and other multilateral organisations.
I will be delighted to continue our constructive dialogue and close joint work on topical issues regarding bilateral and international affairs for the prosperity of the friendly nations of Russia and Tajikistan.”
