The Assistant to the President for Social Development and Public Relations Affairs Emomali Nasriddinzoda spoke at the ceremony and noted that the inhabitants of France and Europe received interesting and extensive information about Tajikistan’s beautiful mountainous nature, which created a good basis for the further development of cooperation between Tajikistan and France.

Nasriddinzoda hopes that in the future, through such grandiose events, Tajikistan will be able to present other aspects of its history and culture.

Following the ceremony, by presidential decrees in honor of the 30th anniversary of the state independence of Tajikistan and for a worthy contribution to the development of cultural relations between Tajikistan and France, Makariou and the Curator of the collections of China and Central Asia Valerie Zaleski were awarded the Order of Friendship.
