Statement by the Spokesperson on the 25th Independence Day of the Republic of Tajikistan

The European Union congratulates the Republic of Tajikistan on the 25th anniversary of its declaration of national independence.

The European Union has strongly supported the transformation processes in Tajikistan and we are committed to a long-term relationship for the development, stability and security of the country on the basis of our Partnership and Cooperation Agreement and the EU's Central Asia Strategy.

Further strengthening the European Union's political and economic commitment to the countries of Central Asia will be a key focus of the upcoming EU-Central Asia Foreign Ministers' Meeting, which will be chaired by the High Representative/Vice-President, Federica Mogherini. To be held in Brussels on 4 October, ahead of the Brussels Conference on Afghanistan, the meeting will be a further illustration of our strong ties with our Central Asian partners.
