During Hu's meeting with Tajik President Emomali Rakhmon, the two exchanged views on bilateral relations and other issues of common concern while pledging to further cooperation between the two neighbors.

Hu expressed satisfaction with the healthy and smooth development of bilateral ties in recent years, and proposed that in the next stage, the two countries should set up a mechanism for customs cooperation to simplify customs procedures and support bilateral economic and trade cooperation.

The two countries should also expand cooperation in the fields of infrastructure, agriculture and mining and upgrade economic and trade cooperation, Hu said.

Rakhmon said mutual political trust was deepened and friendly cooperation between the two countries made new progress in the past year. Both countries have carried out close cooperation in the areas of economy, trade, transport, science, technology, education and culture.

He said with the assistance of China, Tajikistan had completed a number of major infrastructure projects, including bridges and an electricity transmission line connecting the power grids in the northern and southern parts of the country.

Hu is in Tashkent for a state visit to Uzbekistan and for an annual summit of the SCO. Earlier on Thursday he also met with Chairman of Uzbek Senate Ilgizar Sabirov, when he said inter-parliamentary exchanges have played an important role in advancing the friendly and cooperative partnership between China and Uzbekistan and called for more efforts to enhance such exchanges in the future.

Hu will conclude his visit here and fly to Kazakhstan Friday.
