BISHKEK -- Uzbekistani President Shavkat Mirziyoyev Tuesday (September 5) arrived in Bishkek on his first presidential visit to Kyrgyzstan in 17 years, CA-News.org reported. The visit ends Wednesday (September 6).

No Uzbekistani president had journeyed to Kyrgyzstan since the late Islam Karimov did so in 2000.

Mirziyoyev is expected to hold talks with Kyrgyz counterpart Almazbek Atambayev and the country's prime minister and parliament speaker. Officials expect to sign a treaty demarking more than 80% of their countries' shared border, according to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.
