DUSHANBE, 28.12.2021 (NIAT Khovar) – Russia will begin the construction of a modern border outpost in Tajikistan on the border with Afghanistan. This was announced yesterday at a press conference in Dushanbe by the Russian Ambassador to Tajikistan Igor Lyakin-Frolov.

“The [security] issues were considered both in bilateral and multilateral contexts, in particular, within the framework of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO). The decision was made to strengthen the Tajik-Afghan border. Another contribution of Russia is the construction of a border post in the Shamsiddin Shohin district. Money has been allocated and an agreement has been signed,” said Lyakin-Frolov.

He also clarified that within the framework of these decisions, Russia has already delivered weapons for the Armed Forces of Tajikistan.

According to him, modernization is actively underway in the 201st Russian military base stationed in Tajikistan. It is equipped with the most modern equipment, and a number of exercises and maneuvers are being conducted. About 40 exercises have already taken place this year.

He noted that besides bilateral exercises, multilateral ones were also held within the framework of the CSTO with the participation of other countries. “This issue [security on the Tajik-Afghan border] will receive increased attention,” he added.
