DUSHANBE, January 12, /ITAR-TASS/. Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan have formed a joint committee to investigate an armed clash, in which 10 servicemen were wounded on both sides at the Isfara-Batken section of the border between the two countries.
The chiefs of the border services of two neighbouring countries head the committee, the command of the border troops in Tajikistan told Itar-Tass.
“Presently the operational situation on this border section is stable and is fully under control,” a source in the command of the country’s border troops said. He confirmed Kyrgyzstan’s unilateral closure of the border, noting that Tajik border guards have stepped up security at the problematic section of the border, mobilising the military reserves.
“We are also placing joint border patrols, which we had agreed upon recently at a meeting of the joint intergovernmental committee on delimitation and demarcation of disputable border sections. The police and local authorities are giving explanations to people living in the border regions,” a representative of the command of the Tajik border troops added.
On Saturday evening, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan accused each other of instigating a border conflict with the use of weapons.
