V.Putin: Dear Emomali Sharipovich! Dear friends, First of all I want to thank the President of Tajikistan for our work today in the framework of the CIS. You managed to create a very pleasant and businesslike atmosphere at the same time, which led to good results of joint work. Thank you very much for hospitality. As for bilateral relations, they are developing positively. Last year, the growth of commodity turnover was about five percent, and this year – already 35 [percent]. This is a very good indicator, and we, of course, need to keep the tempo set. The intergovernmental commission is effective: from your side – the prime minister, on our part – the First Deputy Prime Minister, and at the same time we have Mr. Siluanov Siluanov Anton Germanovich First Deputy Prime Minister – Minister of Finance and the Minister of Finance, therefore, in his hands a lot of concentrated levers of control in the economic sphere. I hope that this will also help the development of our bilateral ties. I am very glad to have the opportunity to exchange information with you on how our relations are developing and to outline the steps for the near future. Thank you.
