DUSHANBE, October 8 (Itar-Tass) - Tajik President Emomali Rakhmon, when receiving the Russian delegation's head, State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin, confirmed the adherence to the policy of his country for strategic partnership with Russia.
Russia for Tajikistan is a strategic partner and a country very close in all the aspects. Tajikistan and Russia have thousands of firm threads of ties, his press service cited him as saying. About 240 bilateral agreements form the legal basis of Tajik-Russian cooperation, and 30 documents are under consideration, the press service said.
Rakhmon expressed satisfaction with the recent signing of a package of bilateral documents, including the agreements on the 201st Russian military base, conditions for presence of Tajik workers in Russia and duty-free export of oil products. According to the president, the documents will serve both countries' interests and consolidation of strategic relations. An important achievement is the extended period for presence of Tajik citizens without registration for 15 days after arrival in Russia and work permits for up to three years for migrant workers.
The Tajik leader favours more active work of the intergovernmental commission on trade and economic cooperation and use of other efficient factors to increase the volume of trade turnover between Tajikistan and Russia. Rakhmon expressed regret that Russian-Tajik trade turnover had a downward trend in recent time.
The presidential press service noted that there was a constructive talk on the situation in the region and the world and other issues of mutual interest.
