An armed conflict that sparked up on the Tajik-Kyrgyz border between several border guards of the two countries is localized, Kyrgyz Deputy Prime Minister Toktokuchuk Mamytov in charge of defence, security and the law and order in the Central Asian republic said at a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Zhantoro Satybaldiyev in the Kyrgyz capital. The meeting was devoted to the current situation in Batken Region of Kyrgyzstan.
“The medical aid is being given to wounded border guards. I had a telephone conversation with Tajik counterpart Murodali Alimardon, we agreed to conduct a joint investigation of the border incident,” the republican governmental press service quoted Mamytov as saying.
