The Uzbek-Turkmen Intergovernmental Commission has agreed and approved the work plan for legal demarcation of the interstate border of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan in 2017, having intensified the talks on this topic. “A regular meeting of working groups comprising the Joint Uzbek-Turkmen Intergovernmental Commission on the issues related to the delimitation and demarcation of the state border between Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan took place in Tashkent on May 1-5, 2017,” the press service of the agency reported. As a result of the meeting, a protocol was signed and the 2017 field work plan was agreed.


“Within the framework of the agreements reached during the state visit of President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev to Turkmenistan on March 6-7, 2017, the negotiations on the legal registration of the state Uzbek-Turkmen border have intensified,” the Uzbek Foreign Ministry said. In his words, the meeting took place in an atmosphere of mutual understanding and friendship.


As reported earlier, in late March, within the framework of the intergovernmental commission of Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, the negotiation process on demarcation and delimitation of the state border of the two countries resumed.


Within the framework of the recently adopted development strategy of Uzbekistan for the period 2017-2021, the relevant ministries and departments were instructed to develop a plan of actions aimed at demarcation and delimitation of state borders before the end of Q1 2017. In particular, the plan provides for the resumption of the negotiation process with Turkmenistan and Tajikistan with a view to discussing the legal registration of the uncoordinated part of the state border.


Among the tasks of primary importance in the foreign policy sphere, the new president of Uzbekistan, Shavkat Mirziyoyev indicates “resetting” the relations with the neighboring CA countries; in particular, regarding the state border issues.
