Kazakhstan to provide military and technical assistance to Tajikistan
By decree issued on July 13, the Government of Tajikistan instructs the country’s ambassador to Kazakhstan to sign an agreement on the provision by Kazakhstan’s Government of military-and-technical assistance in ensuring security in Tajikistan’s districts bordering Afghanistan.
The draft agreement notes that the military-and-technical assistance is provided to Tajikistan in a form of gratuitous transfer of military property.
“The names and volumes of military equipment are coordinated by the authorized bodies of the Sides through diplomatic channels within a two-month period after the signing of this agreement,” the draft agreement says.
The assistance received reportedly must be used solely for the purpose of ensuring security along the Tajik-Afghan border.
