MINSK, May 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Belarus and Tajikistan have expressed readiness to develop military-technical cooperation at a bilateral level and within the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO).
“We favoured further development of regional interaction in compliance with our obligations,” Tajik President Emomali Rakhmon said after talks with his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko on Saturday.
The parties signed several agreements, including on the development of cooperation in architecture and construction, light industry, sports, as well as between regions. “I’m confident that the implementation of the agreements will allow us to reach another level in our relations,” Lukashenko said.
He added that there are no forbidden topics between both countries. “We are members of the military-political organisation [CSTO). We don’t hide it. If we are able to provide aid in military-technical, defence cooperation, in border issues, we’ll do this,” Lukashenko said.
Belarus is also ready to render aid to Tajikistan to training military and civil affairs specialists on the territory of Belarus and to creating training centres in Tajikistan, he said.
