Saudi – Tajikistan relations
The peoples of Tajikistan and Saudi Arabia are bound by lofty cultural, and spiritual values and historical and cultural ties that span more than a thousand years.
From this point of view, in the early nineties of the twentieth century, the Kingdom took the initiative to recognize the sovereignty of Tajikistan to be at the forefront of the countries of the Islamic and Arab world that established cooperation relations after declaring their independence, as diplomatic relations were established between the two countries on February 22, 1992.
Since that event, the two parties have moved forward towards continuing the path of constructive, mutually beneficial, and steady cooperation relations at the political, economic, and social levels, based on the foundation of friendship and traditional brotherhood, good understanding, sincere trust, and mutual respect.
Tajikistan considers the friendly Kingdom to be its important partner in the Arab world and the Middle East. It pays constant and great care to strengthen and develop multi-faceted relations with it and seeks to strengthen ties of solidarity, cooperation, and distinguished relations for the benefit of the people of the two countries.
On the political level, Tajikistan and Saudi Arabia maintain continuous contact at the highest levels to this day, which represents an important factor in creating new opportunities for cooperation in many fields.
It should be noted that both countries have similar or similar positions on the most important issues of international politics, as they cooperate closely within the framework of international organizations, including the UN, the OIC, and other specialized organizations.
