Bishkek (AKIpress) - Karzai+Mederov Turkmenistan has taken the issue of murder of its border guards with President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai as constant criminal activities have been reported in border areas of Faryab and Badghis provinces on the Turkmenistan-Afghan border.

Turkmenistan believes that Afghan criminal groups are involved in killing Turkmenistan border guards with the support of Afghan border security staff. The matter has been discussed between President Karzai and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan Rashid Meredov during their meeting in Kabul.

Cross border criminal activities have been reported in past also, and it has been noted that Afghan criminal gangs with the help of Afghan border security staff are trespassing Turkmenistan constantly. This matter was discussed during the meeting. The Afghan President accepted that such incidents are increasing, underlining the necessity for immediate measures to combat and stop criminal holdouts.

He suggested a session be convened soon by the border security commission of both states to contemplate over the issue while Meredov asked the Afghan Government to probe into the border incidents and arrest the perpetrators.

Karzai assured the Turkmen Minister that Afghanistan would start probes into the border incidents. He regarded the extensive cooperation between intelligence and security agencies of both the countries as important for thwarting criminal activities in the frontiers, and articulated that more Afghan security forces would be deployed in areas bordering Turkmenistan.
