BISHKEK, January 22. /TASS/. The Kyrgyz government has approved the draft agreement with Tajikistan on the identification of 519,9 kilometers of borderline between the two countries, the press service of the Kyrgyz Cabinet reported on Friday.
"Last November, Bishkek hosted a regular meeting of the two countries’ government delegations on delimitation and demarcation of the Kyrgyz-Tajik state border," the report said. "During this meeting, along with other issues, the participants discussed the draft agreement between the two countries on the state border with the length of 519,9 kilometers described and previously endorsed by the parties." Following the meeting, Bishkek and Dushanbe agreed to submit the draft agreement to the governments "for intra-state voting procedures". "To date, the Kyrgyz side has held the approval procedure," the document said. "The Cabinet approved the work of the country’s government delegation on delimitation and demarcation of the Kyrgyz-Tajik state border in the agreed areas with the length of 519,9 kilometers."
The total length of the border between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan is about 1,000 kilometers. Some of its sections have been considered disputable after the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991.
