BISHKEK. Kyrgyz officials say there were some advances in the recent Kyrgyz-Uzbek talks on border delimitation. The talks held in Tashkent on March 12-16, this year, resulted adding about 22 km to the already defined border between the two countries (before that it was delimited about 690 km out of 1,500 km of their common border). Bakyt Tunkatarov, an official of the Kyrgyz foreign ministry, told RFE/RL today that a protocol signed by the Kyrgyz and Uzbek delegations, is to be discussed at their government meetings. If the governments will agree with the protocol then the both sides will install about 13 border posts at the defined part of their common border. Also, a road between the Kyrgyz enclave of Barak (a village inside Uzbekistan) and the Kyrgyz border has been opened for the villagers in accordance with the agreement between the Kyrgyz and Uzbek governmental delegations.
