    DUSHANBE, April 24 (RIA Novosti) - Prospects of Russian-Tajik cooperation in combating illegal drugs trafficking and problems of Tajik migrant workers in Russia will be on the agenda of the 2nd meeting of the Interparliamentary Commission of the State Duma and Tajikistan's lower house of parliament to be held on April 26-30 in Moscow, Muhammadato Sultanov, spokesman for the Tajik parliament, told RIA Novosti.

    According to him, the most important issues to be addressed by the Commission will concern the bilateral Russian-Tajik cooperation and provision of due legislative support for the latter.
