China, Tajikistan agree to forge comprehensive strategic partnership

Chinese President Xi Jinping held talks with President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon on Thursday, agreeing to establish comprehensive strategic partnership between the two countries.

Applauding Tajikistan's support for the Belt and Road Initiative, Xi said both sides should synergize the Belt and Road Initiative with Tajikistan's national development strategy for the period up to 2030.

The Chinese president suggested both sides break new ground in agriculture, industrial capacity cooperation and scientific innovation.

Tajikistan backs the Silk Road Economic Belt and will work with China to expand partnership in finance, agriculture, water resources, energy and mining, among others, Rahmon said.
