DUSHANBE, November 18 (Itar-Tass) —— A delegation of the Tajik Migration Service has delayed its working visit for technical reasons. The visit was due to start on November 18, 2011, the service’s press office told Itar-Tass.
The press office said that the new visit date was being coordinated at the Tajik government.
According to unconfirmed reports, Tajik President Emomali Rahmon will meet with Migration Service head Safialo Devovayev on Friday night to discuss the situation of Tajik labor migrants in Russia and the program of the upcoming visit of migration officers to Moscow. The media will have no access to the meeting.
Devovayev asked the Tajik media not to stir up tensions around the migrants’ situation because such reports failed to meet the spirit of Tajik-Russian relations. Fifty-seven labor migrants have been deported from Russia and the Russian migration authorities are considering the deportation of another 150.
Officially, more than 700,000 labor migrants from Tajikistan work in Russia. Unofficial sources say their actual number is much larger.
