According to him, all the Central Asian countries took extra security measures. "For instance, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan closed their borders," Mr. Mylnikov said.
"The terrorist attacks on Uzbekistan will not boost similar events in other Central Asian countries," he added.
In his words, the situation in Central Asia is currently under control. "The power structures have been consolidated in these countries. Their special services, law enforcement bodies and task force units boast substantial counter-terrorist experience".
Five terrorist attacks recently hit Uzbekistan. Several dozens of people were killed as a result, including nine Uzbek law enforcers.
