ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: President of Tajikistan H.E. Emomali Rahmon will pay a two-day visit to Pakistan on June 2-3 2021 at the invitation of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The Tajik president will be accompanied by a high-level delegation.

   

Pakistan and Tajikistan enjoy close brotherly relations underpinned by commonality of faith, shared history and cultural affinities. These ties are characterized by mutual respect, shared perceptions and a common desire to promote peace, stability, and development in the region.

Tajikistan is important within the context of Pakistan’s vision for closer ties and enhanced cooperation with Central Asia. The vision emphasizes forging deeper trade, investment, energy, security, and people-to-people links.

During the visit, Prime Minister Imran Khan and President Emomali Rahmon will lead their respective sides in the delegation-level talks.

The two sides will exchange views on deepening bilateral cooperation in diverse areas including political, economic, trade, investment, energy, security and defence, culture, education and regional connectivity.

A number of Agreements/MoUs are expected to be signed during the visit.

The visiting dignitary will separately meet with President Dr. Arif Alvi.

The two countries share common views on major regional and international issues and cooperate closely at various multilateral fora. Tajikistan is the current chair of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

The Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi visited Dushanbe in March 2021 to attend the Ministerial meeting of the Heart of Asia-Istanbul Process (HoA-IP), followed by his bilateral visit to Tajikistan.

On May 25, 2021, the two sides held the 5th round of Pakistan-Tajikistan Bilateral Political Consultations (BPC) at the level of Foreign Secretary/First Deputy Foreign Minister and reviewed the whole gamut of bilateral relations.

Both Pakistan and Tajikistan are part of the CASA-1000 Transmission line Project along with the Kyrgyz Republic and Afghanistan. The power project envisages the transportation of surplus electric power from the Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan to Pakistan (1000 MW) and Afghanistan (300 MW).

The Tajik President Emomali Rahmon has visited Pakistan seven times since 1994. His last bilateral visit was in November 2015.

In the multilateral context, President Rahmon visited Pakistan for the 13th ECO Summit held in Islamabad in March 2017.

His forthcoming visit will reinforce the efforts of both sides to forge a long-term, multi-dimensional relationship.
