Following talks with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on September 17, Tajik President Emomali Rahmon said that Dushanbe and Islamabad had agreed to facilitate talks between the Taliban and the Tajiks of Afghanistan in the Tajik capital.

Emomali Rahmon also told reporters that during the meeting with the Prime Minister of Pakistan, special attention was paid to the problems of Afghanistan.

The President of Tajikistan stressed that the neighbors of Afghanistan are most interested in restoring peace and stability in this country and pay special attention to the revival of the national economy of Afghanistan.

In this context, the hope was expressed that peace and stability in this neighboring country will be restored in the near future and the interests of all political and ethnic groups in Afghanistan will be taken into account.

Emomali Rahmon once again drew the attention of the world community to the fact that the government of Tajikistan supports an inclusive government in Afghanistan with the participation of representatives of all social groups.

At the same time, it was emphasized that Tajiks and other ethnic groups should take their rightful place in inclusive government.

The President of Tajikistan stressed that the earliest possible elimination of the conflict and tensions in the Panjshir province by declaring a ceasefire and opening roads for providing humanitarian assistance to the population of the region is today one of the most important tasks.

He also said that an agreement was reached with the Prime Minister of Pakistan to facilitate negotiations between the Taliban and Tajiks in Dushanbe.
