Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan agree on temporary border opening


MINSK, Belarus -- The presidents of Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan agreed to open their countries' generally restricted border temporarily, until a bilateral working group finalises a road map for better relations, reported Thursday (November 30).

Kazakhstani President Nursultan Nazarbayev and his newly elected Kyrgyz counterpart, Sooronbai Jeenbekov, conferred during the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) summit in Minsk Thursday.

They also agreed to have both countries, as well as the Eurasian Economic Union, administer security on the Kyrgyz-Kazakhstani border.

The two leaders discussed "all existing issues" between their countries, said Jeenbekov.
