Kyrgyz PM hopes to find solution to border problems with Kazakhstan

YEREVAN. Oct 25 (Interfax) - Kyrgyz Prime Minister Sapar Isakov hopes to ensure the free travel of vehicles across the border with Kazakhstan in the near future.

"As you know, Kazakhstan stepped up border control in regard to [Kyrgyz] vehicles and goods on October 10, and this problem is still unresolved," Isakov said at a meeting of the prime ministers of Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) member states in Yerevan on Wednesday.

"I'd like to hope this problem will be solved, and our Kazakh friends and brothers deal with the issue," he said.

"Our agreements stipulate that vehicles should be moving rather than stand still; this is the provision of Union treaties declaring freedom of movement of goods, cargo, capital, and labor force," Isakov said.
