Atambayev called «lawlessness» the congestion of people and cars at border checkpoints with Kazakhstan

The situation on the Kyrgyz-Kazakh border runs counter to the agreements reached within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union (EurAsEC). This was stated on Friday by the President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev in the Batken region of the republic during the ceremony of opening houses for military personnel, the press service of the head of the Kyrgyz state said.

«For three days I have been observing the lawlessness that is happening on the Kyrgyz-Kazakh border, where all norms and agreements of the Eurasian Economic Union are violated,» he said. According to him, the Kyrgyz people «will never be afraid of a three-day blockade» and in no case will «elect foreign» sixes «(apparently, we are talking about one of the presidential candidates).

According to Atambayev, Kyrgyzstan «will survive today’s lawlessness,» as it did in 2010, when the border with Kazakhstan was closed for almost a month and a half .

«We will defend our independence. Unfortunately, we see that the country today may lose its independence not only because of the introduction of foreign troops, but also simply because of the simple purchase and imposition of some kind of» six «on Kyrgyzstan as the head of state.» — continued the president. He also called on neighboring Kazakhstan to live «in peace and friendship.» «When there was a terrible famine in Kazakhstan, hundreds of thousands of Kazakhs survived thanks to our people, who shared the last piece of bread,» the head of Kyrgyzstan recalled.

The situation on the border between Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan became tense on October 10 after the Kazakh authorities tightened control over the passage of goods and citizens through the checkpoints. As a result, a large number of people and trucks have accumulated from the Kyrgyz side, including those with perishable products .

Presidential elections in Kyrgyzstan will be held on October 15, 11 people are running for this post. Atambayev himself this time does not have the right to nominate himself, since the law prohibits citizens from holding this position for more than one six-year term.
