Kazakh-Kyrgyz border will be established according to the international law

Kazakh-Kyrgyz border will be established according to the international law. The Mazhilis or the Lower House of Kazakh Parliament has approved ratification of the Kazakh-Kyrgyz state border demarcation agreement. The border is more than 1,200 kilometres. Presidents of the two countries had signed the document of agreement. The deal has unlimited duration and is non-renounceable. The countries will check the marked borderline every decade. 

MUKHTAR TILEUBERDI, FIRST DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER OF KAZAKHSTAN:

 - We have established a total of 1,055 posts, including the major intermediate posts. We have set up the border marks. Our border is totally delimited and marked and the border marks are already in place. Now, after the ratification of the agreement, the border will be officially regulated by the border service.

Members of the Lower House of Parliament approved another ratification law on the agreement between Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan regarding the tripoint between the state borders of the three countries in the Ustyurt Plateau. The agreement completes delimitation of Kazakhstan’s southern border.

DARKHAN DILMANOV, DIRECTOR, BORDER SERVICE, KAZAKHSTAN NATIONAL SECURITY COMMITTEE:

 - Every week, we perform observational flights across the entire line of the state border, including the tripoint between the three borders. In case of any border incidents or any problems with the border posts, we make sure to resolve the issues bilaterally, instead of tackling them unilaterally. In the event of the rock-fall or any other problem, we do our work openly in front of each other.  

Demarcation is important to provide the country’s territorial integrity, border inviolability and to avoid a threat to the country’s sovereignty.
