Emomali Rahmon has congratulated Donald Trump on his election as U.S. president and said Tajikistan attaches significance to its cooperation with the United States.

“Tajikistan considers expansion of many-sided cooperation and partnership with the United States as one of priorities of its foreign policy and highly appraises the current state of Tajikistan-U.S. relations,” President Rahmon noted in his cable of congratulations.

He also expressed hope for further expansion of bilateral cooperation between Tajikistan and the United States. 

Meanwhile, Donald Trump said in his victory speech to supporters at his headquarters in a Manhattan hotel ballroom in the early hours of November 9 that he would be a president “for all Americans” and would “not let you down.”

Trump sealed his victory when he was declared the winner in Wisconsin, giving him 276 electoral votes and taking him past the 270 needed to win the election.  Donald Trump was nearing 300 electoral votes in the afternoon on November 9, though counting in a handful of states continued.
