Tajik President Emomali Rakhmon and top legislators have met He Luli, vice chairwoman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) of China, for talks on ways of boosting bilateral ties and parliamentary cooperation.
During a meeting with He, who was ending a three-day visit to the Central Asian country on Satruday, Rakhmon said Tajikistan has been a steadfast supporter of China's stand on the Taiwan question and its efforts toward reunification.
Tajikistan is ready to make further efforts to boost cooperation with China within a bilateral framework, as well as multilateral frameworks including in the United Nations and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, Rakhmon said.
Makhmadsaid Ubaidulloyev, speaker of the upper house of Tajikistan's Supreme Assembly, and Sadullo Khairulloyev, speaker of its lower house, said during separate meetings with He that parliamentary cooperation is an important component of the bilateral relationship and the Tajik parliament is ready to strengthen exchanges and cooperation with the NPC at different levels and in various areas.
Both sides pledged to strive for increased pragmatic cooperation in different fields between the two countries.
