Quarantine phytosanitary control in Kyrgyz-Kazakh border removed 

Quarantine phytosanitary control on the Kyrgyz-Kazakh border is removed, the State Inspectorate for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Safety reported to 24.kg news agency.

It is noted that the department has received official notification from Kazakhstan.

Recall, the Kyrgyz party removed posts immediately after the opening of the customs border in 2015, but the neighboring republic kept the control. In October 2016, the Board of Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) made a decision, which obliged Kazakhstan to remove the control to ensure freedom of movement of goods within the EEU. 

According to the Commission, Kazakhstan left quarantine phytosanitary control on the Kazakh-Kyrgyz border area, while the KR removed it unilaterally.

According to the Commission, this kind of control was canceled by the decision of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in May 2015. Its presence has led to significant delays at the border in export of regulated goods from Kyrgyzstan to neighboring republic.

The Commission suggested the Kazakh government to announce the adoption of measures to implement the provisions of the EEU treaty during 10 calendar days from the date of entry into force of the decision.

"At the same time, the veterinary control remains on both sides. Yet we can't say anything about its removal," the press service of the department added.
