DUSHANBE, July 27 (Itar-Tass) —— The night passed relatively calmly in the Tajik Pamir Mountains, where the Tajik law enforcement agencies launched a special operation on July 24. The moratorium on ceasefire is still in effect during the negotiations between the local authorities and ringleaders of illegal armed groups for disarmament and the handover of suspected killers of General of the Tajik security services Abdullo Nazarov, a source in the Tajik security services told Itar-Tass on Friday.
The negotiating parties reached a preliminary agreement that on Friday morning the gunmen will begin to lay down arms voluntarily, the source said. The ringleaders of the illegal armed units did not agree to hand over the criminals involved in the murder of the general yet.
The source in the law enforcement agencies noted that “the situation in the town Khorog will be settled soon.” The special operation of the Tajik law enforcement agencies was launched in the Tajik Pamir Mountains at dawn on July 24. Twelve servicemen of the governmental troops and 30 gunmen were killed in the clashes. According to independent media, 18 civilians were also killed.
The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, Russia, the United States and several other countries and international organizations voiced concerns over violence in the Tajik Pamirs. They voiced hopes for the soonest settlement of the conflict.
