Uzbekistan and Tajikistan request coal from Kyrgyzstan

Uzbekistan and Tajikistan want Kyrgyzstan to export its coal, said chairman of the state industry committee Jyrgalbek Sagynbaev.

Uzbekistan is asking for 1m tons of coal, Tajikistan is asking for 700,000 tons.

Additionally, China wants 800,000 tons of coal from Kyrgyzstan, he said.

A systematic algorithm is being developed. As he said, the coal companies in the south of the country work uncontrollably, so in order to make a quality work there, a branch of Kyrgyzkomur is being opened there, he said.
