Over the years of independence, under your leadership, Tajikistan has successfully chosen the path of development that coincides with the national peculiarities of the country. In Tajikistan, there is political stability, rapid economic growth, a consistent improvement in people's welfare and a marked increase in influence both in the region and in the international arena. China as a friendly neighbor of Tajikistan sincerely rejoices.

During the SCO summit held in Qingdao, China, in June this year, we held fruitful negotiations and reached important agreements on deepening cooperation between our countries in all areas. I attach great importance to the development of Sino-Tajik relations and intend to make continuous joint efforts with you aimed at achieving new successes in bilateral relations of comprehensive strategic partnership for the benefit of our countries and peoples.

I wish prosperity and power to friendly Tajikistan, and happiness and well-being to its people".

It is with greatest pleasure that I write to congratulate you and the people of Tajikistan on your day of independence, which marks Tajikistan’s 27th year as a free and sovereign state.

During this time, the United States stood by Tajikistan as a partner in prosperity and security. Especially in light of the terrorist attack this summer, the United States thanks you for our mutually beneficial counterterrorism cooperation. We remain committed to deepening our information-sharing efforts to ensure this kind of event is never repeated.

This September 9, we look back in appreciation for your years of partnership. From the American people, I want to convey the sincere wish that we continue working together towards a resilient, thriving, and democratic Tajikistan”.

"Dear Emomali Sharipovich!

Please accept my warmest greetings and the best wishes of the entire multinational people of the Republic of Uzbekistan to you and the fraternal people of the Republic of Tajikistan on the occasion of your country's national holiday - Independence Day!

We in Uzbekistan sincerely rejoice at the tangible achievements of Tajikistan - our closest neighbor, in all spheres that have become possible due to your far-sighted policy, state wisdom, dedicated work and talent to unite people.

In an atmosphere of peace and tranquility is ensured socio-economic development and its authority on the world arena grows under your leadership in the country.

I would particularly like to note your personal contribution to strengthening the centuries-old bonds of friendship, good-neighborliness and close cooperation between our states and peoples.

Our regular and trustful meetings, historical mutual visits at the highest level were held this year and your first state visit to our country last month brought Uzbek-Tajik relations to the level of strategic partnership.

The important agreements reached and signed documents are aimed at thoroughly expanding bilateral cooperation in trade, economy, transportation, energy, culture and art, interregional relations and other priority areas. They are undoubtedly of great importance for the long-term development of constructive and fruitful cooperation.

The historical and cultural community was once again vividly confirmed by the remarkable concerts of the masters of arts of Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, as well as active humanitarian exchanges.

I want to emphasize once again that we in Uzbekistan are firmly committed to further deepening an open and trustful dialogue; we are ready to use all opportunities for the widest possible cooperation.

The friendship between the Uzbek and Tajik peoples has been strengthening for thousands of years, and today our duty is to do everything possible to ensure that our truly friendly relations become an example for future generations.

I am confident that by joint efforts we will ensure effective implementation of the potential of strategic partnership for the benefit of our fraternal countries and peoples, in the interests of the whole region of Central Asia.

With all my heart I wish you, dear Emomali Sharipovich, good health, prosperity and new successes in your responsible state activity, and to the people of Tajikistan - peace and prosperity."
