Batken residents asked the President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbai Jeenbekov to solve the border problem in the first place. Deputy of the local council of Ak-Sai Abdusatar Berdiev told 24.kg news agency.
«The President came to Ak-Sai, met with us. He promised to solve border and social problems. He expressed his willingness to demarcate the border with Tajikistan. We also said him our words. For example, I handed over a letter from local deputies to the head of state on the border issues and said that not social issues, but borders and security were a priority for Batken residents. We have been living in constant clashes over our land for several decades,» said Abdusatar Berdiev.
After a conversation with residents of Ak-Sai, Sooronbai Jeenbekov met with the President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon.
