“Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic Jeenbek Kulubaev drew the attention of the UN Secretary General that the Kyrgyz side, solely for the purpose of self-defense and protection of the sovereign territory of the Kyrgyz Republic from another unprovoked invasion of the Tajik armed forces and irregular paramilitary groups, took decisive response measures,” the statement says.

The ministry noted that Guterres will meet with Kyrgyz President Sadyr Japarov on September 20.

Earlier in the day, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan accused each other of shelling the border zone and violating the ceasefire agreement.

During Saturday, the situation at the border was characterized as gradually normalizing, but subsequently the border service of Kyrgyzstan accused the Tajik military of shelling the border village of Pasky-Aryk.

The first shootout in months on the border between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan took place on 14 September. The situation escalated already on the night of September 16, when armed clashes broke out along the entire perimeter of the Kyrgyz-Tajik border.

A joint Kyrgyz-Tajik commission was set up to monitor compliance with the ceasefire on the border. The commission will be headed by the head of the Sughd region of Tajikistan, Rajabboy Ahmadzoda, and the chairman of the Batken region of Kyrgyzstan, Abdikarim Alimbaev.

The border of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan periodically becomes a zone of conflict between local residents and border guards of the two countries. The reason for this is the areas where it is impossible to determine how the border between states lies.
