Rwanda And Tajikistan Start Diplomatic Relations

Rwanda has established diplomatic relations with the Republic of Tajikistan.

Ambassador Valentine Rugwabiza, Rwanda’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations today met with Amb. Mahmadaminov Tajikistan Permanent Representative to the UN and both signed a Joint Communiqué Establishing Diplomatic Relations between the two countries to promote and strengthen mutual friendship and cooperation.

Tajikistan is located in the heart of Central Asia. It is bordered by Kyrgyzstan on the north, China on the east, Afghanistan on the south, and Uzbekistan on the west and northwest.

The capital of Tajikistan is Dushanbe and the people in this country are refered to as Tajik.

Just like Rwanda, Tajikistan hosts higher mountains than any other country in the Central East Asia region.

More than nine-tenths of Tajikistan’s territory is mountainous; about half lies 10,000 feet (3,000 metres) or more above sea level.

Tajikistan possesses rich mineral deposits. Important metallic ores are iron, lead, zinc, antimony, mercury, gold, tin, and tungsten.

The nonmetallic minerals include; common salt, carbonates, fluorite, arsenic, quartz sand, asbestos, and precious and semiprecious stones.

Energy resources include sizable coal deposits and smaller reserves of natural gas and petroleum.

Rwanda’s cooperation with Tajikistan would likely expand into sharing technology, capital and skills in exploitation of natural resources.

Tajikistan was a constituent (union) republic of the Soviet Union from 1929 until its independence in 1991.
