The Times of Central Asia, 06 April 2016

The Government of Kyrgyzstan at the closed-door meeting on April 4 decided to take back from Uzbekistan four resorts at Kyrgyzstan’s Lake Issyk-Kul, Kyrgyz media reported with reference to the Government’s press service.


The Government ordered the Public Property Management Fund of Kyrgyzstan to transfer into state ownership the following health resorts currently managed by Uzbekistan’s legal entities: the Golden Sands resort in the village of Bosteri in the Issyk-Kul province, the Dilorom resort in the village of Kara-Oi, the Rokhat-NBU resort in the village of Kara-Oi, and the Buston resort in the Ton district of the Issyk-Kul province.    


According to the Fergana information agency, the resorts are under long-term rent by Uzbek legal entities. In particular, Rokhat is a resort of the National Bank of Uzbekistan, Dilorom — of Uzbekistan’s Asaka Bank, and Golden Sands — of the Tashkent aircraft production plant. 


Uzbek resorts appeared at Issyk-Kul after the Soviet government in the late 1960s declared the Kyrgyz lake a resort area of the all-Union significance. As the Kyrgyz Soviet Republic had no money to build resorts on its own, neighboring Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan then built their resorts at Issyk-Kul. 


After the breakup of the Soviet Union, in 1992, the newly independent states agreed that the resorts remain Kyrgyzstan’s property but could be used by legal entities of other states.
