Last month, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a message to his Tajik counterpart underlined Tehran's resolve to further expand ties with the Central Asian state. In his message, Ahmadinejad extended his congratulations over the 20th anniversary of Tajikistan's independence from the former Soviet Union, and hoped for the further enhancement of ties between the two neighboring states. "I am confident that Tajikistan's government and people will step on the path of progress and development, relying on the country's age-old history and art and the valuable experiences they have gained during the last two decades after their country's independence, and on this path they will have the Islamic Republic of Iran's support," the Iranian president said.
