“The relations between our countries have taken on the nature of a genuine strategic partnership”, Mr Medvedev said in his message. “They are rapidly expanding and are being enriched with new areas and projects. The significant practical results achieved, above all in trade and economic relations, science and technology and military-technical cooperation confirm that we have chosen the right policy.
I am sure that the recent summit in Dushanbe will give a new boost to developing our bilateral cooperation in the interests of our countries and peoples. And the productive cooperation between Russia and Tajikistan in the international arena, also taking into account the results of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit, will continue to play an important part in strengthening security and stability in Central Asia and throughout the world”.
