Tajikistan President arrives in Tehran for bilateral talks

Heading a high-ranking political and economic delegation, Tajik President Emomali Rahmon arrived in the Iranian capital of Tehran on Sunday afternoon.

Upon his arrival at Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the President of Tajikistan was welcomed by Iranian Minister of Energy Ali Akbar Mehrabian.

Rahmon’s two-day visit took place at the official invitation of the Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi.

During his visit, the Tajik President will meet the Iranian President.

The visit will come after the Iranian President traveled to Dushanbe at the invitation of his Tajik counterpart to attend the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), during which 8 cooperation documents between Iran and Tajikistan were signed by the officials of the two countries. Also on that trip, after 15 years, Iran’s application for full membership in the SCO was finally accepted.
