Pour l'eau, des Tadjiks font plus confiance à l'Aga Khan qu'à l'ONU-2003-09-02

Les fontaines de Douchanbe, la capitale tadjike, ont célébré ces trois derniers jours le déroulement, sous l'égide de l'ONU, d'un forum sur la crise de l'eau, mais nombre de Tadjiks, notamment parmi les musulmans ismaéliens, font surtout confiance à leur chef spirituel, l'Aga Khan, pour résoudre le problème.

Dévastée par une guerre civile dans les années 1990, l'ancienne république soviétique d'Asie centrale a fait bonne figure pour accueillir le forum consacré aux problèmes de désertification et des maladies infectieuses transmises par l'eau, qui s'est clos lundi soir.
