09:23, January 13, 2012

DUSHANBE, Jan. 12 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao's special envoy, Chen Zhili, held talks with Tajik President Emomali Rakhmon here on Thursday to discuss relations between their two countries.

Chen, who is vice chairwoman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) of China, conveyed Hu's warm greetings to Rakhmon.

Chen said that, thanks to the joint efforts of the two sides, remarkable achievements in the development of bilateral ties between China and Tajikistan had been made in the past two decades.

The two countries had carried out a series of major cooperation projects in such fields as the economy and trade, transportation and electricity, based on the principle of mutual benefit, she said.

Chen said the two sides had also maintained close coordination within the framework of the United Nations and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and made their contribution to regional stability and world peace.

China is ready to seize the opportunity of the 20th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic between China and Tajikistan to enhance China-Tajikistan political mutual trust, tap their cooperation potential and take bilateral ties into ever new stages, Chen said.

Rakhmon said Tajikistan had been committed to developing a new type of friendly relations with China since the two countries established diplomatic ties 20 years ago.

Bilateral cooperation in such fields as politics, the economy and trade, culture and education between the two countries had been fruitful, Rakhmon said.

The Tajik side adheres to the one-China policy and opposes separatism in any form, he said.

The two countries have also coordinated their efforts in the fight against the "three evil forces" of separatism, extremism and terrorism as well as transnational organized crime, he said, adding their multilateral cooperation had promising prospects.

Rakhmon also expressed gratitude to China for its long-term help and strong support to Tajikistan.

They also exchanged views on international and regional affairs of common concern.
