Putin, who also turns 60 on Sunday, began the meeting in the capital Dushanbe congratulating Rahmon on the anniversary.

“I have always known that you are a wise person. You have invited us, decoyed so to say, on your birthday because one cannot be denied anything on his birthday. So we will have to sign whatever you want us to,” he said in jest.
