"It is great to meet President Emomali Rahmon, and thank you for your presence to participate in the meeting of the 12th World Islamic Economic Forum in Jakarta," Jokowi remarked while opening the bilateral meeting with Emomali.

On the agenda of the presidential secretariat, the two heads of state will also sign a memorandum of understanding on bilateral cooperation between Indonesia and Tajikistan.

Jokowi also lauded Tajikistans plan to appoint an ambassador to Indonesia.

"I am informed that this is President Emomalis third visit to Indonesia, and I welcome the plan to appoint the ambassador of Tajikistan to Indonesia," said Jokowi.

President Emomali was greeted by President Jokowi as part of a state ceremony held at the Merdeka Palace.

During his visit to Jakarta, Emomali is being accompanied by several ministers, including Minister of Foreign Affairs of Tajikistan Aslov Sirodjidin Muhridinovich.
