China and Tajikistan on Monday agreed to strengthen their friendly ties and bilateral cooperation.

Speaking highly of the development of the China-Tajikistan relationship, Tajik President Emomali Sharipovich Rakhmon said that strengthening bilateral ties between the two countries is the demand of the times and the common aspiration of both peoples.

China's long-term support and assistance has brought substantial benefits to the people in Tajikistan, Rakhmon said here Monday while meeting with visiting Chinese State Councilor Meng Jianzhu.

China is always a good neighbor, partner and friend of Tajikistan, and consolidating relations with China is one of the priorities in Tajikistan's diplomatic strategies, said the president.

Rakhmon said he believed Meng's visit will inject new impetus into bilateral cooperation in various fields, especially in the areas of law enforcement and security.

Meng, for his part, hailed the strong development momentum of the good-neighborly friendship and cooperation between China and Tajikistan and close high-level exchanges between leaders of the two sides.

The two sides have supported each other steadfastly on major issues, and bilateral cooperation in economy, trade and security has been growing continuously, said Meng, who is also China's public security minister.

The friendly relationship between China and Tajikistan enjoys great potential and promising prospects, he added.

He said China is willing to work together with Tajikistan to implement agreements and consensus reached by leaders of the two sides and take substantial steps to safeguard the interests of the two countries in the field of national security and development on the basis of the principles of mutual respect, equal treatment, mutual benefits and win-win results.

The two sides signed cooperation agreements on security and other areas during Meng's visit.
