Kazakhstan modernizes all checkpoints on border with Kyrgyzstan

Till the end of the year, Kazakhstan will modernize all checkpoints on the Kyrgyz-Kazakh border, an adviser to the Ambassador of Kazakhstan to the Kyrgyz Republic Kairat Telenchinov said today at a briefing.

According to him, the message of the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev dated March 31 says that for full disclosure of the republic’s potential, coordination with all countries is needed. The Head of Kazakhstan noted that it is necessary to ensure free transit of goods and the modernization of transport corridors.

The Ministry of Investment and Development of Kazakhstan has developed a project for the modernization of border crossing points in Zhambyl region. A record amount of 2.2 billion tenge (about 484 million soms) is provided for the implementation of the project.

In particular, from March till December, it is planned to modernize the checkpoint Kordai-Ak-Jol. In addition to the checkpoint, adjacent territory will also be landscaped, and withdrawal of land for building a parking lot is possible.

As for Karasu-Ak-Tilek checkpoint, it is planned to sign an agreement between the governments of the two countries on the resumption of the construction of the unfinished bridge over Chu River. In addition, the checkpoint itself will be repaired, sidewalks and pedestrian crossings will be built.

The other border checkpoints are to be repaired by the end of the year.
