China and India are locked in a longstanding border dispute, which had led to a bitter war in 1962, deadly clashes in 2020 and recent fighting that has raised the alarm on both sides.
Recent border clashes killed nearly 100 people from the two neighbouring Central Asian states, signalling their friction could destabilise the entire region.
Clashes at the borders of the two Central Asian neighbours have left several people dead and dozens injured.
Kyrgyzstan says its soldiers were returning fire after its outposts along the whole length of the border came under attack by Tajikistan, which hasn't commented on the allegation yet.
At least one person was killed in cross-border shelling between the two Central Asian republics over a water reservoir and pumping station located on the Isfara river, which both countries claim as their own.
Officials in Baku and Yerevan confirmed shelling with large-calibre weapons and said fighting was ongoing near the border in the Tavush region.
