Combating terrorism is an important area of cooperation between India and Tajikistan: Modi

Dushanbe (Tajikistan): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said combating terrorism is an important area of cooperation between India and Tajikistan which are located in the proximity of the main source of terrorism.


Modi, in a media statement after holding talks with Tajikistan President Emomali Rahmon, also conveyed his appreciation to Tajikistan for supporting India’s candidature for a permanent seat in the UNSC.

“At a time of growing threat of terrorism, we have resolved to intensify our cooperation further. Combating terrorism and extremism has always been an important and productive area of cooperation,” he said.

“We are located in the proximity of the main source of terrorism. Combating terrorism has always been an important area of cooperation,” External affairs ministry (MEA) spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted Modi as saying.


Both sides also agreed to boost their defence cooperation.

“We agreed to further strengthen our defence cooperation. It is a strong pillar of our strategic partnership,” he said.

Modi also said that both sides had agreed to promote the International North-South Transport Corridor.

“Other connectivity measures in region will strengthen links,” the MEA tweeted Modi as saying.

Modi said Tajikistan “is my last stop on a visit to the five Central Asian countries. But we sometimes save the special one for last”.

He also extended an invitation to President Rahmon to visit Delhi.

Earlier, after talks with President Rahmon, both sides inked agreements in the field of culture and human resource development.
