- News by RSS
Uzbekistan and Tajikistan have long been linked by close ties of friendship and brotherhood, further strengthening of which is the state visit of the President of our country to Tajikistan. Today, the heads of the two states are pursuing a policy of developing relations between our countries.
Thanks to the political will of the presidents of the two countries, equal and mutually beneficial cooperation rises to a qualitatively new level. An example of such cooperation based on mutual trust can be called the development of interstate relations in the railway sector. Bilateral relations in this direction include transit transportations, passenger transportation, technical service of wagons, and their repair. Until now, two states have been linking the railway through Kudukli and Bekabad stations. From now on, the Amuzang station will also be the link.
On March 9 of this year, by pressing the symbolic launch button, the presidents Shavkat Mirziyoyev and Emomali Rakhmon held a solemn ceremony of opening a new railway, along which the first trains passed. This historic event was broadcast online via a teleconference. At the Amuzang station all the necessary conditions for the employees of the border and customs services were created. In a word, this station will serve as a kind of gate connecting the southern and eastern regions of the Republic of Tajikistan.
The new railway will serve the interests of the two states and have an important role in the development of transit traffic. In particular, there will be opportunities to enter Turkmenistan and Afghanistan. Conditions will be created for the development of passenger transportation, the opening of new directions. Undoubtedly, the new railway between Uzbekistan and Tajikistan will contribute to further development of trade turnover, provision of import and export services, strengthening of relations between two close neighbors and friends.
