Tajikistan president’s visit         

The relationship between the two nations has taken on new dimensions as a result of President of Tajikistan Imam Ali Rehman’s visit to Pakistan; this cooperation will only grow as a result of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s upcoming trip to Tajikistan. The fact that Islamabad was the first capital to establish diplomatic ties with Tajikistan 31 years ago gives an indication of the depth of relations between the two nations, which have the potential to develop into a strategic alliance. Delegation-level discussions, agreements, and memorandums of understanding were signed to boost Pakistan-Tajikistan cooperation during President Imam Ali Rehman’s two-day visit to Pakistan. The two governments decided to deepen their close and comradely ties and increase their collaboration in a number of areas, including commerce, economy, energy, agriculture, security, and industry. Also, transit trade was highlighted in their agreements and memoranda of understanding. Pakistan intends to expand its railway, road, and energy networks with Central Asian nations, according to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who described the Tajik president’s visit as the start of a new era of cooperation and deepening of ties between the two nations. Additionally, he emphasised the urgency of finishing the “Casa” 1000 (Central Asia South Asia 1000) power project. The president of Tajikistan declared that his country will collaborate with Pakistan to address other issues, such as terrorism, and to promote peace and stability in Afghanistan. In order to take more systematic collaborative actions to combat terrorism and environmental problems, like-minded nations must communicate more than ever due to the quickly evolving and complex global situations. Establishing mutually advantageous ties with Pakistan is a goal of both Pakistani and Tajik foreign policies. President Rehman says that useful collaboration in the developing energy sectors, such as CASA 1000, as well as granting Tajikistan access to the ports of Gwadar and Karachi, were among the topics discussed during his visit to Islamabad. Activating government commissions and working groups in significant areas, he claimed, as well as beginning joint ventures for the processing of agricultural products, are also being looked at. The kind of cooperation that Tajikistan’s president and Pakistan’s prime minister have opened the door for is likely to accelerate and generate significant results shortly.
