The message reads, in part:
“Over the past years, your conference has confirmed its importance and prestige. It brings together delegates from the two countries’ legislative and executive authorities, as well as the business and expert communities, and provides a venue for an open and constructive dialogue on current bilateral and regional issues.
I would like to say that Russian-Tajikistani relations are developing rapidly in the spirit of strategic partnership and alliance. A major place in our relations traditionally belongs to interregional ties, which include the implementation of numerous mutually beneficial projects and initiatives in trade, investment, infrastructure, agriculture, education and culture.
I am confident that the discussions held at your conference will be interesting and instructive, creating conditions for exchanging valuable experience and coordinating new cooperation avenues, as well as helping strengthen mutual trust and understanding between the people of Russia and Tajikistan.”
