Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan agree on borders and cooperation

Jul 10, 2001 02:00 AM

During a two-day official visit to Kazakhstan on 5-6 July by Turkmen President Saparmurat Niyazov, he and his Kazakh counterpart Nursultan Nazarbayev signed a treaty on the delimitation and demarcation of their countries' 450 km common border and a treaty on economic cooperation from 2001-2010.
Niyazov told after his talks with Nazarbayev on 5 July that they also reached agreement on the tariffs for the export to Iran via Turkmenistan of Kazakh oil. On 30 June, Kazakh Foreign Minister Yerlan Idrisov was telling journalists that the price Ashgabat demands for such exports is too high.

The two presidents also discussed exporting Turkmen gas to China via Kazakhstan, which would necessitate construction of a 300 km pipeline from Almaty to the Chinese border. Niyazov congratulated his host on the latter's 61st birthday on 6 July, promising him the gift of a purebred Akhal-tekke horse.
