[13.01.24] While Some Kazakh Media Accuse Uzbekistan of Non-Cooperation

While the Kyrgyz and Kazakh parts of the 4 January agreement are being implemented -- the exchange of Kazakh coal and fuel oil in exchange for a reduction in the flow through the turbines at the Toktogul plant -- some Kazakh media have complained that Uzbekistan has not taken the measures promised at the 4 January meeting to control the flow from the Chardara Reservoir on the Uzbek-Kazakh border, gazeta.kz reported on 13 January. According to khabar.kz on 13 January, representatives of the three countries were dissatisfied with the results of a follow-up crisis meeting that ended recently in Tashkent, at least partly because Uzbek representatives refused to explain their country's inaction. According to gazeta.kz, Tajikistan has offered to divert water from the Toktogul River to reduce pressure on the Toktogul Reservoir.
