Kazakhstan intends to take two water reservoirs of Kyrgyzstan under video control. The Minister of Agriculture of Kyrgyzstan Nurbek Murashev told at the meeting of Respublika — Ata Jurt faction of the Parliament.
According to him, a meeting with the delegation from Kazakhstan on the provision with irrigation water during the spring field work was held in February.
«The neighbors suggested to install video cameras on Orto-Tokoi and Kirov water reservoirs. They want to watch online the discharge of water from them. We did not agree. They left and two days later imposed a ban on the import of some products from Kyrgyzstan,» Nurbek Murashev told.
A government spokesman in the Parliament noted that the neighboring countries could not control the water reservoirs as strategic facilities.
Recall, Kazakhstan introduced a temporary ban on the import of potatoes, persimmons, apples and restrictions on meat and dairy products from Kyrgyzstan on February 19.
