Deadly clashes on Tajik-Kyrgyz border leave one dead

A shootout occurred on the border of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, as a result of which, according to preliminary data, one soldier of the Kyrgyz State Border Service was killed, ONA reports.

This was stated by a representative of the border service of Kyrgyzstan.

“The Tajik side was the first to use weapons, firing at the Kyrgyz border post of Maksat, and then the temporary Sai border post in the Leilek district of Batken oblast,” TASS quoted him as saying.

In July, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan agreed to patrol the common border.
