Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan agree on further demarcation of borders

The officials agreed on demarcation of additional 10.76 km of the Tajik-Kyrgyz state border. The two countries have a total border length of 972 kilometers


The latest meetings of topographic groups on legal issues of governmental delegations for the demarcation and delimitation of the state border between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan took place in the city of Buston, Sughd Region of Tajikistan, Asia Plus reports.

The result of the groups’ work was the agreement on an additional 10.76 km of the Tajik-Kyrgyz state border, announced by the State Committee for National Security of Tajikistan (GKNB). The heads of the security services of both countries – Kamchybek Tashiev, the head of the GKNB of Kyrgyzstan, and Saimumin Yatimov, the head of the special services of Tajikistan – were involved in the process of signing the coordination protocol.

During the negotiations between the delegation leaders, discussions focused on the most complex sections of the border, which often lead to armed confrontations.

They instructed the working groups to continue work on determining the border line in the remaining areas.

Following the meeting in Buston, a corresponding protocol was signed.

“The parties will continue work on describing the remaining sections at the next meeting, which will take place on the territory of Kyrgyzstan,” the message says.

Over the past few months, the authorities of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan have been actively negotiating to coordinate the state border.

In February, Tajikistan’s President Emomali Rahmon informed the Kyrgyz Foreign Minister, Jeenbek Kulubaev, during a meeting that over the past four months, the two countries had agreed on the draft and working description of the order for 196 km of the state border line.

The total length of the Kyrgyz-Tajik border is 972 kilometers. It was previously reported that all work on delineating the border between the two countries would be completed by March of this year.

The sides’ meetings are held alternately on each other’s territory.
