The message reads, in part:
“Over the previous decades, we have managed to reach the level of strategic partnership and allied relations between Russia and Tajikistan. A substantive political dialogue and effective cooperation in trade, the economy, science and technology and humanitarian area are being promoted. Moscow and Dushanbe constructively cooperate in heading off threats and challenges to regional security and coordinate their efforts in the CSTO, CIS, SCO, the UN and other multilateral formats.
I believe further progress in fostering relations between Russia and Tajikistan in their entirety meets the basic interests of the friendly peoples of our two counties and is beneficial to strengthening peace and stability in Central Asia.”
