Defense Ministry spokesman Murat Ashyrbekov reported the detentions today. Ashyrbekov did not give the identities of the two, and he declined to say when they were arrested or which country they were accused of working for.
It is the second high-profile case involving Kyrgyzstan's national security in just over two months.
An employee of the Kyrgyz parliament's press office, Jypargul Arykova, and a Chinese national were arrested on June 19 on suspicion of spying for Chinese intelligence services.
On August 2, a Bishkek city court cited the severity of those charges in rejecting Arykova's bail request.
