BISHKEK, June 20. /TASS/. Kyrgyzstan’s President Almazbek Atambayev will take part in a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) due to be held in the Uzbek capital city Tashkent on June 23-24, 2016, spokesman for the Kyrgyz government Almaz Usenov told TASS on Monday.
"The president has taken a decision to attend the summit," he said.
Earlier, Atambayev said he might skip the Tashkent summit due to the deterioration of the situation at the Kyrgyz-Uzbek border this spring. "How can I go there if the situation is not friendly?" he said back then.
He said the use of force is inadmissible is solving disputable issues with the neighboring state. "I will be guided by the interests of our people," he said referring to his possible participation in the SCO summit.
Tensions at the Kyrgyz-Uzbek border emerged on March 18, 2016 after Uzbekistan has pulled its servicemen and hardware to a non-agreed border section near Chalasart neighborhood.
