    PressTV - China advances into Tajikistan territories: National Social-Democratic party

    Head of Tajikistan’s Social Democratic party Ramatillo Zoirov says that Chinese forces have made noticeable advancements into Tajikistan’s territories beyond the Gorno-Badakhshan Province.


    Zoirov told a news agency belonging to the Islamic Movement of Tajikistan that Chinese border guards have entered the town of Murghab, as much as 20 kilometers into Tajikistan’s territories.

    He added that he has seen the Chinese guards in areas deep in Tajikistan territories during a visit to Murghab.

    The advancement comes as only 1,000 square kilometers of gold-rich Murghab is considered to be China’s territory under a border agreement between the two sides.

    In 2011, Tajikistan ended more than 100 years of territorial dispute and ceded 1,142 square kilometers of its total 143,000 square kilometers to China, the world’s third largest country.

    Meanwhile, officials say Tajikistan has transferred its military forces to the Gorno-Badakhshan Province to prevent local protests against the country’s decision to hand over another area of Murghab to China in order to pay off its debt to Beijing.

    It must be Chinese territory illegally usurped by Tajikistan.

    Or well, that is what China will claim!

    Fascinating!

    Back to the cowrie system of barter and then usurping the area!

    what chinese are doing is in accord with border agreement.

    different politicans in Tajikistan can say what ever they want to save the vote bank but the article itself can be not totally true like its last sentence.

    no one pays debt off by doing this.

    and probably it means chinese companies have got the rights to dig some mines there and the terrority still belongs to Tajikistan.

    It must be for the natural resources.
    Has less to do with diplomatic /strategic gain.
