BISHKEK, September 16. /TASS/. Tajikistan will take over presidency in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) from Russia in 2018, chairman of the CIS executive committee Sergai Lebedev said on Friday after a summit of the CIS heads of state in Bishkek.
"Tajikistan was approved as CIS co-president, along with Russia, in 2017, which means Tajikistan will be ready to take over presidency in the Commonwealth of Independent States in 2018," he said.
Summing up the results of the summit, Lebedev noted that the heads of delegations agreed that the Commonwealth of Independent States has established itself as an international regional organization. "It is needed, it is useful and there can be no talk of its weakening, the more so its termination," he stressed.
