As neighbors of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Tajikistan both face comparable security issues and dangers, including terrorism and cross-border drug trafficking, according to Minister of Defense Khawaja Muhammad Asif on Thursday.
During a conversation with the president of the Republic of Tajikistan, Emomali Rahmon, the defense minister made these comments. Asif sent his warmest wishes to the government, military, and citizens of Tajikistan.
“Pakistan believes in a peaceful resolution of all conflicts and respects the efforts of Tajikistan in fostering peace,” he continued.
It was also decided that Pakistan will continue to support the Tajik armed forces by sharing technological know-how and increasing their intelligence capabilities.
The minister suggested amicable sporting tournaments between the armed services and the exchange of military bands on national holidays.
The summit included topics such as bilateral defense cooperation, counterterrorism, defense production, and the investigation of new paths to development and prosperity.
The president of Tajikistan reaffirmed his nation’s commitment and promised to cooperate with Pakistan to fortify their bilateral ties. Asif was extended an invitation to visit Tajikistan shortly.
