 Tajikistan’s Government plans to conclude with the Republic of Korea a number of agreements regarding the criminal prosecution.

The two countries are reportedly expected to sign agreements on extradition, the transfer of convicts and mutual legal assistance in criminal matters.

By government’s regulation issued on March 30 relevant ministries and agencies are ordered to discuss and endorse draft agreements on the mentioned matters.

After the Republic of Tajikistan gained its independence, the Republic of Korea was among the first countries to recognize Tajikistan. Officially, the diplomatic relations between Tajikistan and South Korea were established on April 27, 1992.

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Dushanbe has been operating since June 20, 2008.

The political and trade-economic relations between the two countries are based on agreements in the field of trade, mutual protection and encouragement of investments, rejection of mutual requirements for obtaining visas for holders of official and diplomatic passports.

Tajikistan intends to use the experience of Korea, equipment and new technologies to establish domestic production of household appliances, hygiene products, household chemicals and high-quality competitive light industry products based on local raw materials.
