DUSHANBE, December 13. /TASS/. Tajikistan’s President Emomali Rakhmon has sharply criticized the Islamic State movement calling it “a plaque of the new century and a global danger,” Rakhmon said at a congress of the People’s Democratic Party on Saturday.
At the congress the president-led party put forward candidates for the elections to the national parliament scheduled for March 1, 2015.
“Emomali Rakhmon voiced his serious concern over the situation in the region and the world, over activity of terrorist and extremist groups in Iraq and Syria, in particular, of the Islamic State,” the presidential press service said adding that “he named the Islamic State as a plaque of the new century and a global danger.”
Rakhmon believes “Taliban, Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State have the one goal, which is to destroy states and wreak havoc in the settled world order.”
“The negative impact of the Islamic State on Tajikistan must not be underestimated,” he said underscoring that over 200 citizens were fighting in the ranks of this organization against governmental forces in Syria and Iraq, according to Tajikistan’s special services.
The president called on the compatriots “not to stay indifferent and put a barrier to this global threat.”
The People’s Democratic Party of this Central Asian republic leads the troika of political ‘heavyweights,’ along with the Islamic Renaissance and the Communist Parties.
