    DUSHANBE, April 2 (RIA Novosti) - Tajik young men will not be drafted in spring 2004 into Russian border troops deployed in the republic due to the lack of a corresponding request by the Frontier Department of the Russian FSB in Tajikistan.

    The Russian border group press service said no application for the spring draft of Tajikistan's citizens into Russian border troops deployed in the republic was submitted due to the planned stage-by-stage transfer of some sections of the Tajik-Afghan border to the committee for state border protection of Tajikistan.

    During the fall 2003 draft, about 1,000 Tajik nationals were recruited into Russian border troops.

    The transfer of the Khorog and Kalaikhum border detachments to Tajik border guards is scheduled for the end of 2004. Servicemen from these detachments who have not served their full term will instead replace the demobilized border-guards-.
