The heads of state also discussed the recent developments in Afghanistan and agreed to keep in close contact.
Vladimir Putin had previously sent a message of greetings to Emomali Rahmon.
The message reads, in part:
“Your years of activity as the head of state have won you well deserved respect among your compatriots and abroad. Under your guidance, Tajikistan has achieved considerable successes in the economic and social spheres.
We highly appreciate your efforts to strengthen the relations of strategic partnership and alliance between our countries, as well as your contribution to security and stability in Central Asia.
