PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia and Tajikistan have agreed to work closely in various key fields to strengthen bilateral relations, says Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Both countries emphasised on cooperation in areas such as education, tourism, sports, economy, and science and technology, he said at a joint press conference yesterday with Tajikistan President Emomali Sharipovich Rahmon in conjunction with his four-day visit to Malaysia.
“We stressed the importance of bringing our bilateral trade to a much higher level,” Najib said.
Najib and Rahmon also witnessed the signing of five memorandums of understanding (MoU) and one agreement to strengthen cooperation in various fields, such as higher education, tourism, physical training and sports, MoU with the Olympic Council of Malaysia and the agreement on economic, technical and scientific cooperation.
This is Rahmon’s first state visit to Malaysia since the establishment of diplomatic ties between Tajikistan and Malaysia in 1992.
Rahmon was earlier given a ceremonial welcome at Parliament Square by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Hajah Haminah. Rahmon then inspected a guard-of-honour comprising four officers and 102 members of the Royal Malay Regiment’s First Battalion. — Bernama
