Spokesman Calls Iran Main Priority for Tajikistan Foreign Policy

TEHRAN (FNA)- Tajikistan's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Dolat Nazriov reiterated on Wednesday that Iran sets a major priority in his country's foreign policy.



"Entering the stage of stability and reconstruction, Tajikistan announced that it would pursue an open door foreign policy which aimed to establish and expand relations with all countries, specially with those countries interested in beneficial mutual cooperation with Dushanbe," Nazriov said in an exclusive interview with FNA, elaborating on his country's foreign policy.

Stressing mutual trust among the senior officials of the two countries, specially Tajik President Emomali Rahmon and his counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Nazriov said, "Tehran and Dushanbe enjoy the most frequent exchanges of political, economic and cultural delegations and, considering the agreements made by the two sides in different fields, a bright prospect is perceived for two countries' relations."

He referred to Iran's role in performing economic and specially infrastructural plans in Tajikistan and pointed out that the agreements made by the Iranian and Tajik officials as well as those reached within the framework of strategic cooperation among the three Persian-language-speaking countries - Tajikistan, Iran and Afghanistan - have pushed the two countries' ties to a new phase.

Nazriov said plans to build railway, road and electricity transfer lines through Afghanistan to Iran are examples of the aforementioned agreements.
