KERBEN, Jumada II 16, 1437, March 25, 2016, SPA — Uzbek and Kyrgyz border guards held their first face-to-face talks on Friday since both sides deployed troops and armoured vehicles in a disputed area, Kyrgyzstan said, according to Reuters.

The confrontation between the two ex-Soviet Central Asian republics has triggered public protests on the Kyrgyz side and President Almazbek Atambayev has accused his opponents of using the border standoff to try to destabilise the country.
