Paris, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 13th Oct, 2021 ) :French President Emmanuel Macron hosted Tajikistan's leader for rare talks on Wednesday, vowing to help the Central Asian state as it deals with the aftermath of the Taliban takeover of neighbouring Afghanistan.
The invitation to the Elysee Palace -- a rare honour for strongman President Emomali Rakhmon, in power since 1992 -- is a sign of the important role France believes regional countries can play in the Afghan crisis.
