Kyrgyzstan Says Ceasefire Reached With Tajikistan After Lethal Clashes
Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 28th Jan, 2022 ) :Kyrgyzstan said it had reached a ceasefire with Central Asian neighbour Tajikistan on Friday following the latest lethal flare up at the pair's contested border.
The violence that broke out Thursday evening was the bloodiest escalation between the countries since clashes that killed dozens last year.
Kyrgyzstan's national security committee said Friday that it had reached an agreement for "a complete ceasefire" with Tajikistan during a meeting at the border between provincial governors and border service representatives.
"The night passed calmly," the committee said in a separate statement.
Tajikistan, a closed authoritarian country, did not immediately confirm the agreement.
