Tajikistan seeks expeditious conclusion of 26/11 trial



another setback for Pakistan -


Tajikistan on Monday joined India in seeking expeditious conclusion of the Mumbai terror attack trial in Pakistan and called for "active prosecution of the authors of such crimes and their accomplices".

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon held talks on key regional and international issues and reviewed the current status of bilateral ties apart from deciding to elevate it to "strategic partnership" which will include cooperation in a wide spectrum of areas, including political, economic, defence and counter-terrorism.

The two countries also inked six pacts in several areas including business and trade, health, culture, sports and education.

A joint statement, issued after the meeting, said that "with the tragic losses suffered in the November 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai particularly in mind, both sides called for active prosecution of the authors of such crimes and their accomplices and urged that they be brought to justice expeditiously."

Reaffirming that international terrorism is a threat to global peace and security, the two sides condemned "those who support terrorism and underscored that those aiding, abetting and sheltering terrorists were as guilty of acts of terrorism as their actual perpetrators."

The leaders also stressed the need to work jointly towards eliminating terrorism including exchange of information, data, financing of terrorism and related matters and emphasized the need for enhanced dialogue between security agencies.

"Tajikistan is a key partner of India in the Central Asian region.....President Rahmon and I agreed that in view of the broad progress made in our bilateral relations, particularly in defence and security cooperation, we should elevate our relations to a 'strategic partnership'," Dr. Singh said at a joint media event.

He also noted that India and Tajikistan have common concerns regarding regional developments. "President Rahmon and I exchanged views on the situation in the Central Asian region and beyond, particularly in the context of the security transition in Afghanistan. We also agreed to deepen our counter-terrorism cooperation," the Prime Minister said.

Noting the similarity of their positions on bilateral, regional and global issues, the two sides agreed that the Foreign Ministries and other ministries of both countries would continue to hold regular consultations, including exchange of visits.

On trade and business front, the two leaders agreed that the current level of bilateral trade was well below potential and underscored the need for increasing the volume and base of mutual trade through concrete supportive measures and mechanisms.

They agreed that the Joint Commission on Trade, Economic, Scientific and Technical Cooperation was an important mechanism for implementation of agreements.

"We hope to send a delegation from the private and public sectors to explore investment opportunities in these zones.

Information technology, e-connectivity, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, textiles, leather goods, mining and renewable energy are some of the areas with high potential," Dr. Singh said.

They also agreed to discuss and finalize in the near future more bilateral documents in spheres such as air services, double taxation, consular issues, justice, mining, social security, finance and banking, industry and energy, and transport and communications.
