Mirziyoyev signs off on border delineation agreement with Tajikistan
TASHKENT -- Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev signed into law an agreement delineating disputed parts of the border between Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, Asia-Plus reported Thursday (July 5).
The lower house of Uzbekistan's parliament ratified the agreement May 31. Uzbekistan's senate seconded it June 28.
Tajikistan's parliament ratified the same deal April 19.
The move leaves only a 2km-long stretch of the border between Sughd Province, Tajikistan, and Syrdarya (Sirdaryo) Province, Uzbekistan, unresolved.
A settlement of that lingering question is expected during Tajik President Emomali Rahmon's coming visit to Uzbekistan, scheduled for early fall.
