Tajikistan, Iran enjoy deep ties in light of Persian language: Culture min.

Tehran, IRNA – Iranian Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Mohammad Mehdi Esmaeili has described Persian as a common language, which creates deep relations between Tajikistan and Iran.

Esmaeili wrote on his Twitter account on Sunday that the expansion of cultural relationships is a big achievement of President Ebrahim Raisi’s visit to Tajikistan. President Raisi traveled to Dushanbe, Tajikistan, to take part in the 21st Summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). During the trip, Raisi held talks with his Tajik counterpart Emomali Rahmon.

The two sides pointed out to common religion, culture, and language of both countries, expressing hope that a new chapter of relationship and cooperation in economic, cultural, and political arenas will open.

President Raisi called for the expansion of bilateral collaborations, saying that enhancing mutual ties will pave the way for the development of regional cooperation.

The Iranian and Tajik officials should continue regular discussions in a bid to consolidate all-out and stable ties between the two Persian language nations and turn the relationship into a pattern at the regional level, the Iranian chief executive added.

Rahmon, for his part, expressed gratitude to his Iranian counterpart, because Raisi accepted to visit Tajikistan as his first foreign trip following his presidency since August 3, 2021, and participate in the 21st Summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization presided by Tajikistan.

Referring to the previous joint ventures that were carried out by Iranian specialists, the Tajik president added that the friendship between people and governments of both countries paves the ground for developing mutual cooperation.

Heads of states of eight main members of the organization (China, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan) unanimously expressed their consent to change Iran’s observer membership to a permanent one at the end of the 21st SCO Summit in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, on September 17.
