BISHKEK, January 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Kyrgyz Vice-Premier Tokon Mamytov has met Tajik counterpart Muradali Alimardon to reach agreement on settling the border situation between both countries, the presidential press service told Itar-Tass.
“During the meeting, the parties agreed to step up the work of government groups for the delimitation of the state border. Moreover, the vice-premiers agreed to have another meeting in the middle of February,” the press service said.
The skirmishes occurred between Kyrgyz and Tajik border guards at the settlement of Ak-Sai, Batken District, on January 11. Eight people were injured during the skirmishes. The construction of a motor road ignited the conflict. Bishkek considers the territory its own. Dushanbe does not share this point of view.
“The participants in the meeting succeeded in reaching agreement on all issues related to the incident of January 11, 2014 that had led to destabilization of the situation on the border,” the Kyrgyz Foreign Ministry reported.
A decision was taken to withdraw additional armed units, which had been sent to this area after the armed incident, the ministry said.
