“At the Thursday talks between the chiefs of the border services of the two countries Tajikistan demanded to remove Kyrgyz border checkpoint Tamdyk and withdraw our border guards from there,” the public relations department said, noting that “Otherwise, around 30 Tajik citizens are ready to attack this border checkpoint and Tajik authorities will not bear responsibility for their actions.”
On Thursday, Kyrgyz border guards clashed with border guards from the neighbouring republic, as a result a man was killed and six others were wounded near Tamdyk. Bishkek shouldered responsibility for this incident on Tajik citizens who started hurling stones at Kyrgyz servicemen. This incident stirred up an armed clash.
Chief of Kyrgyz Border Service Rayimberdi Duishenbiev refused strongly to fulfil this demand and remove the border-crossing point, Kyrgyz border officials said. Meanwhile, he insisted that Tajikistan “should do explanatory work with local residents of border districts and avert illegal actions.” “The situation on Kyrgyz-Tajik section of the state border remains tense, Ak-Sai-Vorukh road remains closed,” the public relations department noted.
