The Tajik Foreign Minister Hamrokhon Zarifi noted that the mentioned session is being held in the year of 20th anniversary of establishment of diplomatic relations of the countries of the region with the Republic of Korea and highlighted that today’s role of the Republic of Korea in the international community is expanding constantly due to its active position in the world scene and constructive approach to urgent modern issues.

At the meetings it was also noted that despite the achieved positive moments in the development of economic cooperation, in particular, the foreign trade turnover between our countries for the period from 1992 to 2012 has made up about 270 million USD, the economic cooperation between the two friendly countries does not answer the existing potential and opportunities.
