China To Open Border Crossing With Tajikistan

21 April 2004 -- China will open a border crossing with Tajikistan in May, according to an announcement today by Tajik President Imomali Rakhmonov's office.

The move will enable Central Asian countries to establish road links with China, the statement asserts.

Tajikistan and China completed the demarcation of their 519-kilometer border in 2002, the same year that Tajik border guards assumed responsibility for keeping watch on the border from Russian border guards.

Tajikistan's border with China was closed under the Soviet Union.

Chinese state news agency Xinhua reported that the frontier post will open on 25 May.


RFE/RL has been declared an "undesirable organization" by the Russian government.
