Domestic procedures on the interim agreement on the Kyrgyz-Uzbek border have been launched, the information support department of the government of Kyrgyzstan reported.
It is noted that from August 21 to 26 in Bishkek and from August 27 to 31 in Tashkent the meetings of working groups of government delegations on the delimitation and demarcation of the Kyrgyz-Uzbek state border were held. On the outcome of the talks, the government’s special representative for border issues, Kurbanbai Iskandarov, reported to Prime Minister Sapar Isakov.
He said that the parties signed agreements on the results of the meetings. Now, in each of the countries, the preparation of an interim agreement between Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan for the first time on the Kyrgyz-Uzbek state border begins. Sapar Isakov instructed Kyrgyz officials to begin internal procedures for the preparation of the document.
As the Ambassador of Uzbekistan to the Kyrgyz Republic Komil Rashidov stated earlier, the interim agreement will affect 1,170.53 km of the Kyrgyz-Uzbek border.
Recall, after the change of the president in Uzbekistan, the relations between the two states improved. Next week, the visit of the President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev to Kyrgyzstan is scheduled.
