Iran to assist Tajikistan to develop radio

The Tajikistan radio and television network has been an independent organization for the past 15 years, and its managers are proposing to increase their activities with the help of Iranian experts, Tajik Radio manager Abdulqader Toledov said today. Toledov commented that he is familiar with Iranian radio, adding, “I listen to the voice of Khorasan when I am in Tajikistan and it is quite educational for me.”

“We recently signed an agreement with the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), and since Iranian radio has high quality programmes, we are planning joint productions. We are also sending some of our young people to study in various fields at the IRIB University.”
