DUSHANBE, 28.02.2022 (NIAT Khovar) – Today Tajikistan and Germany mark 30 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations. On February 28, 1992, Germany recognized Tajikistan’s independence and in 1993 opened its diplomatic mission in Dushanbe, becoming the first EU member state with an embassy in the country. The first Embassy of Tajikistan in the EU was opened in Bonn, Germany.

On February 14, the President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon sent a congratulatory message to the Federal President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier, which reads as follow:

Tajikistan will out effort to further strengthen these relations.
