This cooperation will be implemented on the basis of the bilateral agreements and as part of the commitments established within the framework of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, the Russian official told TASS news agency.

Rudenko is participating in Tashkent in the Russia and Uzbekistan conference in the face of development and security challenges at a new historical stage of interactions.

He explained that Moscow has in Tajikistan the 201st military base, ‘fully equipped with everything necessary to stop all possible threats that may arise from Afghanistan.’

He stated that, from the defense planning viewpoint, his country assesses the risks associated with the consequences of the conflict in that Central Asian nation.

Under this premise, military exercises took place this month in Tajikistan, in which the Uzbek Armed Forces also participated.
