DUSHANBE, May 19 – Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said China will actively support the development strategies of Tajikistan and will help the country improve its economy, during a meeting with Tajik President Emomali Rahmon on Saturday in Dushanbe.

Wang recalled Rahmon’s state visit to China to attend the China-Central Asia Summit last year, during which the two heads of state announced to establish the China-Tajikistan community with a shared future featuring everlasting friendship, solidarity, mutual support and mutual benefit. 

Wang said it set clear goals for the development of bilateral relations and sent a positive signal to the two peoples and the world.

“China will continue to firmly support Tajikistan in pursuing a development path suited to its national conditions and firmly oppose external interference in Tajikistan’s internal affairs,” said Wang. 

“No matter how the international situation changes, China will always be Tajikistan’s trustworthy friend and partner.”

Rahmon said Tajikistan reached a number of consensuses with China during his visit last year and that significant results have been achieved with their implementation.

He said promoting relations with China is a priority of Tajikistan’s foreign policy and that Tajikistan has been unswervingly adhering to the one-China principle and acknowledges that Taiwan is an inalienable part of China.

He also said China plays a vital role in international and regional affairs and that Tajikistan is willing to closely coordinate with China on multilateral platforms.
