MOSCOW, November 4. /TASS/. The talks on air service with Tajikistan are not scheduled to be held shortly, an official at Russia’s transport ministry told TASS on Friday.
"The talks on Tajikistan are not planned in the near future," the official said.
Russia’s transport ministry said earlier that Russia could suspend flights with Tajikistan from November 8 unless the Central Asian republic’s authorities changed their stance on the Zhukovsky airport.
Tajikistan’s aviation authorities are reluctant to approve flights operated by Russian airlines from Zhukovsky International Airport to the Central Asian country, saying that the airport belongs to Moscow’s airport hub, whereas according to the Russian legislation, Zhukovsky belongs to the Ramensky region.
Russia’s transport ministry also assumes that the attempt by Tajikistan to define the status of the Russian airport violates the sovereignty of Russian authorities on their own territory, while the refusal to approve assignments for a Russian carrier from Zhukovsky directly violates the air service agreement between the countries.
The Tajik side considers it necessary to enter into a new agreement on air service with Russia, Sarvar Bakhti, a spokesman for the Tajik Embassy in Moscow, told TASS Thursday.
