The CSTO Secretariat Commentary on the situation on the Kyrgyz-Tajik Border


WhatsApp Image 2022-09-17 at 10.30.33.jpeg The CSTO Secretariat is seriously concerned and alarmed by the clashes that took place on 14-16 September 2022 on the Kyrgyz-Tajik border with the use of heavy weapons, as a result of which there were deaths and injuries on both sides, as well as destruction of civilian infrastructure. We express our sincere condolences to the families and friends of those killed and share their pain and loss.

We welcome the ceasefire and the talks that have begun between the border services of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. We are confident that mutually acceptable ways will be found to resolve this complex border issue, reduce tensions and prevent the conflict from escalating. We believe that the use of force is unacceptable. Only political and diplomatic methods should be used to resolve contradictions.

The CSTO Secretariat is closely monitoring the situation and hopes that the truce that has now been established will be long-term and sustainable. The conflict must be resolved exclusively at the negotiating table by peaceful means; it is impossible to allow any more loss of life.
