BISHKEK, January 8 (Itar-Tass) — Three Uzbek citizens have got gunshot wounds in an incident, which broke out on the Kyrgyz-Uzbek border. Uzbek representatives stated about the military incident at a meeting between the chiefs of the border services of the two countries and the heads of the local authorities, the public relations department of the Kyrgyz Border Service told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
“The participants in the meeting discussed the investigation of the border incident, which broke out on January 5 on the Kyrgyz-Uzbek section of the state border, and the exchange of information upon the results of the investigation,” the public relations department reported. “Meanwhile, the meeting also discussed how to ensure the security of Uzbek citizens on their way via Kyrgyzstan to the enclave Sokh,” the department said.
Upon the results of the negotiations the countries agreed to sign a protocol, which will include the measures, which the countries had taken to settle the border incident, within a week. “The current situation at the incident site is stable,” the Kyrgyz State Border Service reported.
Last Saturday, several hundreds of residents from the Uzbek enclave Sokh that is situated in the Batken Region of Kyrgyzstan attacked the Kyrgyz border guards and workers, who were mounting the equipment at a new border checkpoint. Several people got bodily injuries in the clash. The residents of the enclave burnt down two cars, which belonged to the Kyrgyz citizens, attacked a minivan, taking hostage several passengers of the vehicle. After the talks between the Kyrgyz authorities and Uzbek officials all 30 hostages were released last Monday.
