DUSHANBE, March 26 (Itar-Tass) — Tajikistan supports steps and initiatives of Afghanistan’s present authorities towards achievement of armistice and stable peace and stability in that country, Tajikistan’s President Emomali Rakhmon told the fifth conference of regional cooperation on Afghanistan, which opened in Dushanbe on Monday.
“Support of these initiatives from the international community should be more effective,” he continued. “Tajikistan supports fully the international overwhelming strategy of providing peace and post-war restoration of Afghanistan. I believe it is necessary to pay more attention to the social and economic aspects of the problem.”
Tajikistan’s leader is sure Afghanistan’s governmental forces should be “fully ready for fighting terrorism, extremism and organised crime after the gradual obtaining of responsibilities by Afghanistan’s law enforcement authorities.” Tajikistan, in its turn, is ready to provide wide support in training of Afghanistan’s border guard and law enforcement staff.
Rakhmon spoke about implementation of the programmes of Afghanistan’s economic recovery and called the international community for “providing more effective assistance.” In the end of the speech, he stressed that the “key to settlement of Afghanistan’s problems is first of all in the hands of the people and government of that country as its legal representation.”
The conference of regional cooperation on Afghanistan features leaders of Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, OSCE’s Secretary General Lamberto Zannier, delegation of the US headed by the country’s Special Envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan Marc Grossman Assistant Secretary for South and Central Asian Affairs Robert Blake, heads of diplomatic authorities and international organisations, accredited in Tajikistan.
