Protocol on delimitation of Kyrgyz-Uzbek border signed

“We have a historic mission to complete the issue of delimitation and demarcation of the Kyrgyz-Uzbek state border. On the one hand, this is a high honor, and on the other, a great responsibility,” Deputy Chairman of Kyrgyz Government Kamchybek Tashiev said.

“I hope that, based on the results of today’s joint meeting, we will prepare a draft Treaty between the Kyrgyz Republic and the Republic of Uzbekistan on the Kyrgyz-Uzbek state border on the remaining sections for signing by our esteemed presidents in the very near future,” Tashiev said during a joint meeting of governmental delegations on delimitation and demarcation of the Kyrgyz-Uzbek state border in Bishkek.

He added that today Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan are close neighbors, true friends and strategic partners. Kyrgyzstan is fully prepared for the further expansion of political, trade, economic, investment, transport, interregional, cultural and humanitarian ties with Uzbekistan.

Prime Minister of Uzbekistan Abdulla Aripov, who is on a working visit to Bishkek, confirmed the full determination of the Uzbek side to agree on a draft Treaty on the delimitation and demarcation of the Kyrgyz-Uzbek state border.

“The governmental delegations of the two republics, having worked hard, have done painstaking work to coordinate the remaining sections of the Kyrgyz-Uzbek state border. I am sure that the completion of the delimitation process will once again confirm the inviolability of our eternal friendship and truly fraternal relations,” Aripov said.

As a result of the meeting, a protocol was signed that will allow starting the procedure for agreeing on a draft of a new Treaty on certain sections of the Kyrgyz-Uzbek state border.

The length of the Kyrgyz-Uzbek state border is more than 1 thousand km. More than 90% of them are de-limited and de-marked. The process of determining the state borders between the two countries accelerated noticeably in 2017, when Presidents Atambayev and Mirziyoyev instructed the relevant services to find mutually acceptable solutions.,
