DUSHANBE, September 2 (Itar-Tass) —— The presidents of Russia and Tajikistan signed an agreement on border cooperation here on Friday. The signing ceremony of this and other documents was held after the negotiations between the delegations of the two countries in Dushanbe.
Dmitry Medvedev and Emomali Rakhmon inked the border cooperation agreement and issued a joint statement. The Russian Federal Security Service and the Tajik National Security State Committee signed the protocols on border cooperation in the presence of the presidents.
Russian Energy Minister Sergei Shmatko and Tajik Deputy Prime Minister Murodali Alimardon signed an intergovernmental program for economic cooperation in 2011-2014.
“The negotiations passed in the atmosphere of friendship and full mutual understanding generally characteristic for bilateral relations and were businesslike and trust-based,” the Tajik president told a press conference. “We discussed current interstate relations and the prospects for their development and exchanged views on several topical regional and international issues,” Rakhmon said.
The presidents expressed “mutual intentions for closer political contacts, their broader agenda, and mutual interests in the joint implementation of concrete economically beneficial projects, including those in the hydropower industry, as the guidelines of cooperation,” the Tajik president said.
Proceeding from the common responsibility for stability and security in Central Asia, the countries confirmed their firm intentions to develop military and military-technical cooperation.
Rakhmon also noted that the bilateral meeting also focused on cultural and humanitarian cooperation.
