Moscow expects that Russian President Vladimir Putin will pay a working visit to Dushanbe soon, Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko stated on Monday on the sidelines of the ‘Russia and Uzbekistan in the Face of Development and Security Challenges at a New Historical Stage of Interaction’ conference.

As you know, unfortunately, we could not make it. But we do hope that the visit will take place in the near future,» the diplomat told TASS.
