This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government
On 5 June we participated in a ceremony to open a classroom at the Military Institute of the Tajikistan Ministry of Defence.
The new English teaching classroom now includes modern equipment where students of the Military Institute can improve their knowledge and understanding of English. The refurbishment follows Ambassador Robin Ord-Smith’s call on the Minister of Defence a year ago, when the Minister requested British Government support for the Military Institute.
At the opening ceremony of the new classroom, Her Majesty’s Ambassador thanked the Tajik Ministry of Defence for their continued support to the Dari Language Training that British students undertake in the Military Institute and for the cooperation with the British Ministry of Defence, particularly with respect to the agreement to allow the transit of military personnel and equipment from Afghanistan over and through the territory of the Republic of Tajikistan.
Following their studies of English, Ministry of Defence personnel will have the opportunity to take part in peacekeeping courses with the British Ministry of Defence, ultimately helping them to enhance the peacekeeping capability of Tajik Armed Forces.
