Iran and Tajikistan exchanged two prisoners and another Iranian convict was forgiven by Tajik president, Iranian Ministry of Justice said on April 1, according to IRNA.

The Iranian prisoners returned home after consultations between Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Tajik President Emomali Rahmon about exchange and clemency of convicts, Iran’s Deputy Minister of justice and Head of Committee for Exchange of Prisoners, Mahmoud Abbasi, said. 

Zarif visited Dushanbe to take part in the Heart of Asia Conference there.

As Abbasi noted, Iran and Tajikistan have good legal and judicial cooperation.
