Tajik troops stopped shelling the territory of Kyrgyzstan

On September 14, on the border of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, a shootout began between the border guards of both countries. After some time, artillerymen and mortarmen pulled up and mutual large-scale shelling of each other's territories began. This happened two days before the start of the summit of the SCO, which includes both Central Asian states, in Samarkand in neighboring Uzbekistan.

On the morning of September 17, the Border Service of the State Committee for National Security of the Kyrgyz Republic informed the public that the situation at the border remains tense. However, already in the afternoon it announced that at 14:20 the Tajik side had stopped shelling from mortars and artillery (barrel and rocket) the positions of the Kyrgyz border guards in the villages of Teshik-Tash, Karamyk and Karool-Dobo of the Chon-Alai district of the Osh region. The agency explained that, given the situation, on the border between the two countries in the Chon-Alai district of the Osh region, negotiations were held between the director of the PS of the State Committee for National Security of the Kyrgyz Republic Ularbek Sharsheev and the commander of the Border Troops of the State Committee for National Security of the Republic of Tajikistan Rajabali Rahmonali.

In turn, the State Committee for National Security of the Republic of Tajikistan informed that from 11:10 to 11:50 the Kyrgyz side fired at the territory of Tajikistan “from all types of weapons” despite the previously announced ceasefire. The Sarkhadchi frontier post of the Lakhsh and Dushanbe frontier detachment of the Isfara frontier detachment, as well as the Somoniyon mahalla (quarter) of the city of Isfara, were shelled.

After that, at the time of writing, there were no reports of artillery shelling from either side. It should be noted that after the collapse of the USSR, territorial disputes between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan did not stop for three decades. Periodically there are conflicts between residents over water, grazing and ethnicity. The military of both countries also periodically shoot at each other and the end of this confrontation is not yet in sight. Last time serious aggravation relationship was observed in April 2021.

    I don’t understand what kind of sadness there is for Russia, they all conduct exercises with the Americans, the Armenians ask to protect them, but they themselves accept Pelosi! Here it is clear to the fool that they arrange all these cabals at the suggestion of the Americans in order to create tension in this area for Russia! You just have to pay no attention, they are sovereign principalities, so let them decide the issues of good neighborliness with each other themselves or devour each other!

    A month ago, a large American landing force landed in Tajikistan, not in vain. They need a conflict in Central Asia to weaken the influence of Russia, like Russia does not solve anything there, but the Americans can. Armenians are an example. the Americans put pressure on Azerbaijan, gave the Armenians reconnoitered at a glance from starlinks and caved in under Pelosi. SchA and Kyrgyzstan will be the same if the current Turkic world does not intervene. But vryatli, the Kazakhs also fell under the Americans, except perhaps with the bayraks of the Turks.
