Natural Resources Ministry: Kyrgyzstan may lose glaciers faster than predicted

Kyrgyzstan may lose all its glaciers. Deputy Minister of Natural Resources, Ecology and Technical Supervision Asel Raimkulova stated at a briefing.

According to her, it was predicted that by 2050 the area of glaciers in Kyrgyzstan would be reduced by half, and in 2100 they could disappear.

However, the Ministry of Natural Resources believes that the process may go much faster than predicted.
