Uzbekistan restores gas supplies to Tajikistan

Uzbekistan has restored natural gas supplies to Tajikistan after its Central Asian neighbour repaid most of its debt, Tajik state gas company Tajiktransgas said on Thursday.

Uzbekistan halted supplies on Tuesday demanding that Tajikistan settled $18 million in debt.

Tajiktransgas said Tajikistan had repaid $10 million and the two countries had agreed it would repay another $7.5 million by supplying electricity to Uzbekistan.

This week Uzbekistan also reduced gas supplies to Kyrgyzstan over unpaid debts.
