Russian analyst Nikita Mendkovich, commenting on the armed confrontation at the Kyrgyz-Tajik border to 24.kg news agency, said that there could not be a military solution to this conflict.
According to him, it would be dishonest to aggravate the situation even more and bring it to war, first of all, in relation to one’s own people. This applies to both Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.
«These moments cannot be regulated in other way. Indeed, escalation over this entire period has taken on the most acute form, and if the parties cannot agree on their own, then you can always resort to Russia’s help. I am sure that Moscow will not refuse to provide the site as a peacekeeping force of the CSTO,» Nikita Mendkovich said.
I cannot vouch for the position of Dushanbe, but solution of the border problem from a position of strength is simply unacceptable for this situation.Nikita Mendkovich
