MOSCOW, March 08, /ITAR-TASS/. An objective assessment should be given to the situation in Ukraine, Tajik Foreign Minister Sirodzhiddin Aslov said after talks with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov on Saturday.
“Tajikistan is deeply alarmed by the development of the situation in Ukraine,” Aslov said. “In our view, the events in Ukraine should be thought over and an objective assessment should be given to processes underway there to prevent confrontation.”
Aslov recalled that in the early 1990s, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Tajikistan “lived through political differences and confrontation that led the country to very serious social and economic consequences.”
"The undeniable facts of our nation's bitter history remind us of the fragility of peace and of the necessity to have a strong political will and make great efforts to unite the nation, reach comprehensive accord and calm in the country," he said.
Ukraine’s legitimate president, Viktor Yanukovich, was ousted in a violent uprising in February. The parliament then took over and appointed an interim head of state and government, which Russia does not recognize.
