In her third overseas trip during the election season, Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh will be travelling to Tajikistan this week to hold talks on mutual security concerns over Afghanistan and take stock of the joint development projects.

Even after the election fever spread across the country from April 7, the Foreign Secretary has visited China, Japan and Russia in two separate trips.

From Thursday, she will be starting a three-day visit to Tajikistan, India’s most important development aid partner in the central Asian region.

This is not surprising as Tajikistan has always been a crucial country due to its strategic location on the north-eastern border of Afghanistan.

A press release issued by the External Affairs Ministry said Sujatha would hold talks with Tajik Deputy Foreign Minister Nizomiddin Zohidov “on bilateral, regional and international issues”.
