DUSHANBE, March 12, /ITAR-TASS/. Tajikistan counts on Russia’s larger part in its energy complex, Makhmadsaid Ubaydulloyev, the speaker of the upper house of Tajik parliament, told reporters on Wednesday after the meeting with Valentina Matviyenko, the speaker of the Federation Council upper house of Russian parliament.
He said Russia makes significant contribution to ensuring Tajikistan’s energy security. The speaker of the upper house of Tajik parliament said this is seen from effective functioning of Sangtuda 1 Hydroelectric Power Plant into whose construction Russia and Tajikistan jointly invested over 700 million dollars.
Ubaydulloyev said that at the upcoming forum of the two countries it is planned to discuss the list of energy facilities to be built. “We hope Russia’s participation in Tajikistan’s energy complex will increase,” he said.
The speaker of the Federation Council, Valentina Matviyenko, in her turn, noted that Tajikistan has a huge energy potential and that Russian companies are interested in continuing cooperation with Tajikistan in this area.
Matviyenko also said that investment climate in Russia and in Tajikistan should be perfected to attract private companies.
