A commission that will implement this process will be set up under the agreement reached in Nur-Sultan.

He held talks with Chairman of the Senate of Parliament of Kazakhstan Maulen Ashimbaev. They signed a cooperation agreement, the press office of the Dushanbe Mayor’s Office reported.

The parties highlighted the importance of promoting interaction within the OSCE and CSTO Parliamentary Assemblies and the United Nations Parliamentary Assembly. Particular attention was paid to partnerships in the political, economic and trade sectors.

Rustam Emomali noted that trade turnover between the two countries had reached about US$ 1 billion by the end of 2020, and this year bilateral trade had increased by almost US$ 100 million. He emphasised that the countries had not used their resources in full.

The Speakers of Parliaments agreed to take measures to enhance relations in agriculture, tourism, education and culture. Touching upon the security situation in Afghanistan, they noted the need to expand military-technical cooperation.
