Tajikistan and China resolve shared border. On Wednesday, January 12, Tajikistan’s lower chamber of Parliament ratified an agreement yielding to China over 1,000 square kilometers of land in the Pamir Mountains. As the Chinese government indicated full satisfaction with the arrangement, this successfully concluded a previous 130-year-long dispute over a shared border region.
Congratulations Tajikistan and China on this peaceful resolution. May the people of your nations be graced with lasting neighborly friendship. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-12180567 http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20110112/wl_nm/us_tajikistan_china_border http://english.peopledaily.com.cn/90001/90776/90883/7260677.html http://www.deccanherald.com/content/129311/one-per-cent-tajikistan-ceded.html http://www.indianexpress.com/news/China-grows-bigger--gets-1-000-sq-km-from-Tajikistan/736714
