Emomali Rahmon, the president of Tajikistan, stated that the creation of an inclusive government with the participation of representatives of all ethnic groups, nationalities, and political and social groups is an important basis for achieving peace and stability in Afghanistan.
The President of Tajikistan said in his speech yesterday September 20 on the second day of the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) that security, stability, and regional cooperation in Central Asia is directly dependent on the situation in Afghanistan.
Emomali Rahmon remarked that drug smuggling from Afghanistan has increased “extraordinarily”.
He added that Afghanistan is still the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world.
Mr. Rahmon has asked the international community to increase the amount of humanitarian aid to the people of Afghanistan, and his country is ready to cooperate in this regard.
Tajikistan had previously expressed concern about drug trafficking and “the presence and activity of terrorists in Afghanistan”.
