China and Tajikistan have agreed to promote cooperation between the two countries in various fields, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Monday, in commenting on Foreign Minister's Wang Yi's just-concluded visit to Tajikistan.

Wang, also member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, arrived in Tajikistan on Saturday for a two-day official visit at the invitation of Tajik Foreign Minister Sirojiddin Muhriddin.

During his visit, Wang met with Tajik President Emomali Rahmon on Saturday, with both sides pledging to expand bilateral cooperation in various areas.

"At the invitation of Tajik Foreign Minister Muhriddin, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, also member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, paid an official visit to Tajikistan. During the visit, Tajik President Rahmon met with the Chinese foreign minister, Wang held talks with Muhriddin and signed cooperation documents between the two foreign ministries and jointly met the press," said Wang Wenbin, the spokesman, at a press conference in Beijing.

"During the talks and meetings, Wang said that no matter how the international situation changes, China will always be a trustworthy friend and partner to Tajikistan. China is ready to work with Tajikistan to further promote the scale of trade, tap the potential of connectivity in an in-depth way, advance cooperation in mineral resources, expand new energy, green transition and other emerging areas of cooperation, help Tajikistan speed up the process of industrialization, raise the level of economic and social development, and embark on a successful path of development and revitalization so as to bring tangible benefits to the Tajik people," said the spokesman.

During the meetings, Rahmon said that the Tajik side firmly upholds the one-China principle and holds that Taiwan is an inalienable part of China.

"The Tajik side said that China is an important strategic partner to Tajikistan and promoting relations with China is a priority of Tajikistan's foreign policy. The Tajik side will, as always, unswervingly adhere to the one-China principle, regard Taiwan as an inalienable part of China's territory, oppose Taiwan independence in any form and support all efforts made by the Chinese government to realize national reunification," said the spokesman.

"The two sides unanimously agreed that under the strategic guidance of President Xi Jinping and President Rahmon, China and Tajikistan, in the spirit of good-neighborliness and friendship, have established a comprehensive strategic partnership. The two countries have also followed the trend of the times by announcing the establishment of a China-Tajikistan community of security and development, and on this basis agreed to build a China-Tajikistan community with a shared future, which has embarked on a path of getting along with neighboring countries based on mutual respect, equal treatment, mutual benefit and win-win outcome, and set a fine example for the development of state-to-state relations," he said.
