On December 1, the new head of the diplomatic mission of Tajikistan in the Russian Federation Davlatshoh Gulmakhmadzoda presented his credentials to RF President Vladimir Putin. The ceremony took place in the Alexander Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace. 19 newly appointed ambassadors took part in the ceremony, the press office of the RF President reported.
Noting that next year would mark the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two states, Putin stressed that the Russian Federation viewed Tajikistan as a friend and ally.
The President focused on the successful chairmanship of Dushanbe in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and the Collective Security Treaty Organization, emphasising that given political instability in Afghanistan, Russia was helping Tajikistan ensure security through the modernisation of the Armed Forces.
Davlatshoh Gulmakhmadzoda was appointed Ambassador of Tajikistan to Russia in August this year in accordance with the decree of President Emomali Rahmon. He was born on January 10, 1961.
