TEHRAN (FNA)- Tajik Foreign Minister Hamrokhon Zarifi congratulated Iranian President-elect Hassan Rouhani on his victory in the country’s June 14 election, calling the voting in Iran “transparent and free”.
“The recent election in Iran was transparent and free,” Zarifi said in a joint press conference with his Iranian counterpart Ali Akbar Salehi in Tehran on Wednesday.
He felicitated Iran’s president-elect and the Iranian nation for successful voting, and said, “The election in Iran is a role model for other countries.”
Zarifi underlined the brotherly relations between Tehran and Dushanbe, and called for increasing cooperation between the two countries.
Iran and Tajikistan have recently accelerated expansion of their ties and cooperation and observers believe that the good achievements gained in area of their mutual cooperation should be deemed as a result of the efforts made by the two countries’ officials.
