War Between Kyrgyzstan on Tatzikistan

Last week’s clashes between civilians, border guards and troops from the states of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan in Central Asia create the framework for a larger-scale war focusing on the long-running water dispute (Batken border zone).

So, far the recent clashes have resulted in the deaths of more than 30 people, injuring 150 and displacing more than 10,000.

Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are members of the Russian-led Collective Security Organisation (CSTO).

Kyrgyzstan considers itself a Turkish nation, while the population of Tajikistan speaks an Iranian language associated with Fasi and Dasi. Intervention in the conflict was made by the Cooperation Council of Turkish Spoken States, known as the Turkish Council, composed of the states of Turkey, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan.

The study entitled Turkic World Vision-2040 (https://aa.com.tr) which is indicative of the intentions of the participating States that make up the Turkish Council. Kyrgyzstan has no reason to negotiate with Tajikistan, which has no one to defend it and certainly not the CSTO. In total, of the roughly 1,000 kilometers of common borders, about a third remain disputed between the two countries, with sporadic clashes between civilians and soldiers erupting decades after the dissolution of the USSR, of which the two countries were members.
