Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan will begin approval of the draft agreement on the border line.

Representatives of Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan signed a protocol in Bishkek on Monday, which provides for the beginning of the process of agreeing on a new agreement on the border line between the two states. This is stated in the message published by the Kyrgyz Cabinet of Ministers.

"The government delegations of the Kyrgyz Republic and the Republic of Uzbekistan on the delimitation and demarcation of the Kyrgyz-Uzbek state border signed a protocol of a joint meeting of government delegations on the delimitation and demarcation of the Kyrgyz-Uzbek state border, which will allow to begin the procedure for approving the draft of a new agreement on certain sections of the Kyrgyz-Uzbek state border," the message says.

On the Kyrgyz side, the document was signed by Deputy Head of the Cabinet of Ministers, Chairman of the State Committee for National Security Kamchybek Tashiyev, on the Uzbek side — Prime Minister Abdulla Aripov.

The length of the common section of the border between the two countries is about 1,380 kilometers. After the collapse of the USSR, several disputed areas remained on it. Because of them, there were periodic conflicts between residents of border areas and military personnel of the two states, including with the use of weapons. In 2017, the parties actively began the process of delimitation and demarcation. According to the latest official data, about 200 kilometers of the Kyrgyz-Uzbek border remained undescribed until September 26.
