New Agreements Signed

During the visit of Tajikistan President Emomali Rahmon to Italy a total of seven new documents were signed, following the high-level meetings.

The agreements include bilateral cooperation in security matters, a memorandum between the Drug Control Agency under the President of Tajikistan and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Italy on operational cooperation in the fight against drugs, among others.

Besides, the agreements also covered other areas such as tourism, science, culture and sustainable development.

The leaders of both countries also discussed opening direct flights between Tajikistan and Italy and the allocation of quotas for Tajik students planning to study in universities of Italy.

Tajikistan President Emomali Rahmon went on his first official trip to Italy and the Vatican on April 22 where he met with the Prime Minister of Italy, Giorgia Meloni, and President Sergio Mattarella.

The new agreement is expected to bring significant benefits for citizens of both countries.

In spite of Tajikistan’s strengthened cooperation with Italy, its relationship with Turkey wasn’t as strong, in particular after Tajikistan revoked visa-free access for Turkish citizens.

Such an announcement came in response to Turkey’s decision to stop visa-free travel for Tajik nationals.
