Official websites of governments of both countries say Kazakhstan Prime Minister Askar and Kyrgyz Premier Mukhammedkalyi Abylgaziev had a telephone conversation on June 10 to discuss cooperation issues.


According to the Kyrgyz government’s official website, at the suggestion of the Kazakh side a mutual agreement was reached on opening of BPCs along the Kyrgyz-Kazakh border.


The sides reportedly also reached an agreement on ensuring unhindered movement of cargo across the Kyrgyz-Kazakh border.


They also discussed issues related to collaboration in combating the spreading of the coronavirus infection and protecting the population against COVID-19.


Kazakhstan unilaterally closed five of seven BPCs along its common border with Kyrgyzstan in late May due to the coronavirus pandemic.
