Areas where conflicts often arise along Tajikistan’s common border with Kyrgyzstan are marked on an interactive map.  

Despite top-level negotiations and readiness of both countries to solve the border problems and prevent conflicts, various conflicts, sometimes armed ones, are frequently arising on the mutual border.  As a result of conflicts, people from both sides suffer and die.

At least four people were killed and dozens others wounded in the most recent incident that occurred in an area adjacent to the Tajik village of Ovchi-Qalacha, not far from the Tajik northern city of Khujand, and the Kyrgyz village of Maksat.

Many border areas in Central Asia have been disputed since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.  The situation is particularly complicated near the numerous exclaves in the Ferghana Valley, where the borders of Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan meet.

Asia-Plus has made an interactive map marking conflict zones along the Tajik-Kyrgyz border.  Border crossing point (BCPs) are also marked on the map.  

“Hot points” are marked with icon ‘fire’ and BCPs are marked with icon ‘Stop’ (push icon to read description).
