The president of Tajikistan, Emomali Rahmon, spoke on the telephone with Emmanuel Macron, the French President about Afghanistan.
According to a news release from the office of the President of Tajikistan on Saturday, November 26, the sides discussed the political, economic, and social situation in the telephone conversation.
According to the statement, they also underlined the joint cooperation of the international community to support peace and stability in war-torn and poverty-stricken Afghanistan.
The two parties have spoken about maintaining regional security and working together to address challenges and concerns including terrorism, extremism, and narcotics.
The Tajik President Emomali Rahom previously visited Paris, the capital of France, in mid-October this year and discussed the situation in Afghanistan with his French counterpart.
Tajikistan, which shares a border with Afghanistan spanning more than 1357 kilometers, has frequently found itself in the center of the latter’s conflict and unrest as well as the spread of its terrorists’ influence into Tajikistan.
Human rights advocates have been concerned by Emomali Rahmon’s stern stances against extremist Islamists and his country’s efforts to crush Islamist groups for years.
Currently, France and Tajikistan are two nations that have publicly opposed the incumbent administration in Afghanistan.
Both countries have previously stated that they do not recognize the Afghan government’s current regime due to the group’s stance toward women and the government’s overall lack of inclusivity.
