Expressing concern over the situation in Kazakhstan, Nazarzoda stated, “We could not remain indifferent. If a serious problem arises in our country, then Kazakhstan will send the most help. Therefore, by decision of the President of the Republic of Tajikistan, we sent a humanitarian caravan. As strategic partners, we must support each other.”

Upon arrival at the Saryagash railway station, the Tajikistan delegation was warmly received by local residents, led by Serik Tolenbergenov, Vice-Minister of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and Beisenbay Tazhibayev, Deputy Akim of the Turkestan Region.
