Russian President Vladimir Putin will discuss bilateral and regional agenda with his Tajik counterpart Emomali Rahmon on April 17, the Kremlin press service said in a statement, TASS reported.
"The talks’ agenda involves key bilateral matters and steps to boost mutually beneficial cooperation in the areas of politics, trade, economy and culture," the statement reads. "The parties will also exchange views on pressing regional issues," the Kremlin press service added.
The two countries’ presidents are expected to sign a number of documents during their Moscow talks.
Rahmon will make an official visit to Russia on April 16-17 at Vladimir Putin’s invitation.
Russian Ambassador to Dushanbe Igor Lyakin-Frolov told TASS earlier that the focus of the Moscow meeting would be on trade and economic cooperation. According to him, the documents the two countries will sign during the Tajik president’s visit will particularly make it possible to improve the supply of Tajik agricultural goods to Russia. Tajikistan’s Foreign Ministry, in turn, said that the documents also included agreements on cooperation in the migration sector.
