Chief of the military commission in Kulob Muhammadrasul Roziev told RFE/RL that retired officers and soldiers from Tajikistan's 10 districts would gather at the local training camp for weapons training.
That will be the first such training since Tajikistan's gaining independence 17 years ago.
Of late, there has been a rise in violence on the Tajik-Afghan border, with two Tajik antidrug officers killed.
Officials say that the murders might have been committed by drug smugglers.
