MOSCOW, January 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Tension persists between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan due to the countries’ territorial claims to each other, however it will be soon eliminated by way of negotiations and various bilateral meetings, Secretary General of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) Nikolai Bordyuzha told reporters on Tuesday.
“We have been in permanent contact with the heads of the countries, discussed measures to localize the conflict. Seven or eight meetings of the top executives of Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan have been held of late for the conflict settlement,” Bordyuzha said. According to him, several unsettled issues, such as the closure of checkpoints from the Kyrgyz side and the presence of both sides’ military contingents on the border, remain today.
“But the fact that the work (on the conflict resolution) is carried out, that the Security Councils of the two countries and their border agencies have joined in the efforts, allows us to assume that the matter will be settled,” the CSTO chief said.
