MOSCOW, September 9 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has congratulated Tajik leader Emomali Rakhmon on the national Independence Day.
“I sincerely congratulate you on the national holiday, the Independence Day,” runs the cable posted on the Kremlin website on Friday.
“In the past 20 years Tajikistan made significant socioeconomic achievements and strengthened its authority on the international scene. Importantly, the friendly, mutually beneficial and equal relations between our states have been developing on the principles of strategic partnership and alliance through all these years,” he said.
Medvedev said he was certain that the “recent summit negotiations of Russia and Tajikistan would boost bilateral cooperation in many areas and broaden interaction in regional and international affairs, in particular, in the context of the latest CIS summit.”
“All that meets the interests of peoples of Russia and Tajikistan and serves the cause of peace and development in Central Asia,” he said.
