Peoples of Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan waiting for completion of border delimitation

The peoples of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are waiting for the completion of the delimitation of the border. President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbai Jeenbekov told the day before during talks in Dushanbe.

«It is gratifying that our opinions and positions on many key issues coincide. To enhance the full range of cooperation, it is necessary to improve the effectiveness of bilateral mechanisms. In this regard, the Interstate Coordination Council, the Kyrgyz-Tajik intergovernmental commissions for the comprehensive consideration of issues and delimitation and demarcation of the state border should work on a regular basis. For a long time our peoples have been waiting for the completion of the delimitation of the state border. An early resolution of the delimitation of the Kyrgyz-Tajik state border and the signing of the treaty will become important factors in strengthening security and stability in the border area,» Sooronbai Jeenbekov said.

He stressed that in this regard, it is necessary to intensify the work of government work groups and in the near future to hold a meeting to finalize the legal framework for describing and tracing the line of the Kyrgyz-Tajik state border.

The President considers it necessary to take joint effective measures in the sphere of protecting state borders, combating terrorism and extremism, drug trafficking.
