Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is indeed a great honor and a privilege for me to welcome you to the official site of the Embassy of the Republic of Tajikistan in the United States of America. I do so with a particular pride having the chance to be the first Ambassador of Tajikistan to the United States of America in the history of my country.

Since Tajikistan became independent in 1991 it has been expanding relations with the international community as well as the United States of America. In this regard I would like to say there are many beneficial ties already established between the two nations.

During the visit of the President of Tajikistan Mr.Emomaly Rakhmonov to the United States, he declared his commitment to continue the development of long-term strategic partnership and cooperation between our states based on mutual benefit and understanding.

On an international level, we continued cooperation with the international community against such threats as international terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass distruction and drug trafficking.

Recognizing the importance of promoting democracy, developing our political system and market oriented economy, as well as strengthening our mutual relations, the Embassy will continue to further develop the cooperation between Tajikistan and the United States as well as the international community.

On February 26, 2003 I presented credentials to the President of the United States of America. Since then the Embassy of Tajikistan opened up its doors and has been working in full capacity in Washington.

Consular section of the Embassy provides a wide array of services to both Tajik citizens in the States as well as US citizens. We welcome all your suggestions to improve our services.

We invite you to visit Tajikistan, a beautiful country with unique hospitality and friendly people, rich ancient history, culture, ethnography and literature. In the United States one can find a little piece of Tajikistan, located in Boulder, in the state of Colorado. With the efforts of Tajik craftsmen and assistance from the capital city - Dushanbe -- a Teahouse (Choikhona) has been built. Everyone who visits the teahouse would certainly think of visiting Tajikistan for real.

The country is made up of high mountain ranges of fascinating beauty that are perfect for group and individual tourism with various kinds of active rest, hiking and camping. It is also worth mentioning that ten years ago, Congressman Mark Udall from Colorado made an ascent of the Peak of Somony (formerly Peak Communism), one of the ten highest mountains in the world.

Tajikistan is also rich in natural resources with all the periodic tables presented. We have tremendous deposits of gold and silver open for investment opportunities. There is also a huge potential in hydropower projects. Rogoun and Sangtouda hydro plants are open for foreign investors. By making investments in such kind of projects you will invest in the future of the region and also guarantee your profits.

In the end, in my capacity of the Ambassador of Tajikistan to the United States of America, I would like to mention that I am eager to devote all my energy to promote even further friendly relations that our two nations have always enjoyed.

I hope that you will find our website useful and helpful.
I wish you successes in all your endeavors.

Thank you.
