TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The prosecutors general of Iran and Tajikistan stressed the need to enhance cooperation between the two countries in the judicial field.

Heading a high-ranking judicial delegation, Iran’s Prosecutor General Mohammad Jafar Montazeri arrived in Dushanbe on Thursday to discuss bilateral ties and the issues of mutual interest.

In a meeting, the Iranian prosecutor general and his Tajik counterpart Yusuf Rahmon weighed plans to strengthen judicial cooperation between the two countries.
