Kyrgyz President Sadyr Japarov suggested Tajikistan to create a "peacekeeping commission" to prevent new conflicts on the border. According to Japarov, this commission will have to consist of elders from both countries living in neighboring or mixed villages, DW reports.
Commenting on the conflict on the border between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, Japarov said he would never allow his country's army to "invade the villages of a neighboring state, attack civilians and destroy their homes."
"I demanded that they not leave Kyrgyzstan and not be the first to shoot," the president stressed.
As we reported earlier, heads of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan’s State Committees for National Security Kamchybek Tashiyev and Saymumin Yatimov reached an agreement on a full ceasefire on the border between the two states.
"Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan agreed on a full ceasefire and the pullout of forces. People of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan have very difficult time now, crisis. The tragedy occured in two countries. It was very hard for us to meet and work in this time. Yet, as intructed by the heads of our states we held a meeting and reached agreement on full cease of fire, withdrawal of troops from the border to their duty stations," Tashiev said.
