Report from Russo-Tajik Summit   Leave a comment

November 25, 2010  [Dushanbe] The Russian military base in Tajikistan is an important factor of stability in the region and proof of mutual confidence between the two countries, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin declared at Russo-Tajik talks on Thursday.

“Cooperation between the defence departments of the two countries and the presence of a full- format, fully-fledged Russian military base in Tajikistan on a long-term basis is a serious sign of mutual confidence between the two countries,” Putin stressed. “This is an important factor of stability in this region, taking into account difficult processes continuing in Afghanistan,” Putin said.

“All of us should do big work in Central Asia so that people could feel confident, be calm and reliably protected there,” the Russian prime minister said.

Putin also mentioned the increasing number of Russo-Tajik initiatives, including the construction of the Sangtuda-1 hydropower plant , which is the most important project underway at present.
