MOSCOW, September 5. /TASS/. Presidents of Russia and Tajikistan Vladimir Putin and Emomali Rakhmon had a telephone conversation on Saturday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
The Russian president viewed the developments in Tajikistan as an attempt to destabilise the situation and assured Tajikistan's government of Russia's support, Peskov said adding the heads of state agreed to hold a separate meeting on the sidelines of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) summit due to be held in Tajikistan's capital of Dushanbe later in September.
On Friday armed groups attacked two defence facilities in that Central Asian republic - the Defence Ministry’s central apparatus and a police station in the town of Vakhdat, just 10km east of the capital city of Dushanbe.
The Interior Ministry has said that the country’s law enforcement agencies are carrying out joint operations against the gang of former Deputy Defence Minister Abdulakhim Nazarzoda holing up in the Ramit mountain gorge.
"At present 32 members of Nazarzoda’s criminal group have been detained, with 13 out of them eliminated," the Interior Ministry said. "At least 500 units of arms and ammunition have been seized."
On Saturday a police checking point at an entrance of Dushanbe came under attack. One police officer was killed.
