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.
