‘The two countries have completed the withdrawal of extra forces and means from the state border line inward to their territories,’ a communique from the Border Service of the Kyrgyz State Committee for National Security stated.
The document informed that a mixed commission made up of representatives of the Defense ministries of the two countries continues to inspect the territory where military units and equipment were previously located.
According to the text, the situation on the border is stable and ‘there were no incidents or shootings’ during the night.
Delegations from both governments began negotiations on Saturday for the demarcation and delimitation of the border in the section shared by both countries, the press service of the Kyrgyz Executive reported.
Nearly half of the 970-kilometer-long Kyrgyz-Tajik frontier has not been demarcated since the collapse of the Soviet Union thirty years ago, Sputnik news agency warned.
For years, such a situation has brought about disputes over the use of land and water resources, with reports of clashes between neighbors at opposite sides of the border.
