Tajik President Emomali Rahmon has arrived in Moscow on a two-day official visit, the Kremlin says.

Rahmon's talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin 'will address key issues relating to bilateral relations and measures to further develop mutually profitable cooperation in the political, trade-economic, and cultural-humanitarian spheres, as well as others. The negotiation participants will exchange opinions on vital regional issues,' the Kremlin press service said.

Rahmon and Putin are expected to sign a number of documents during their Moscow talks.

Russia's ambassador to Dushanbe, Igor Lyakin-Frolov, said the documents the two countries will sign during the Tajik president's visit will particularly make it possible to improve the supply of Tajik agricultural goods to Russia.

Tajikistan's Foreign Ministry, in turn, said agreements on cooperation in the migration sector were also to be signed.

Meeting with State Duma speaker Vyacheslav Volodin in Moscow, Rahmon said that they will include an agreement on 'organized recruitment of migrant workers from Tajikistan.'
