According to Emomali Rahmon, the relations between Tajikistan and Belarus are progressively developing in all areas, including economy, culture and humanitarian affairs. “Today I am ready to discuss with you the state and prospects of our relations, as well as international and regional issues,” the president of Tajikistan said.
“I catch myself thinking that when I come to Dushanbe (and this is not my first time here) I feel at home here.
