Kyrgyzstan has to enact electricity rationing in the north of the country due to Kazakhstan's quit on February 25 from parallel functioning with United Energy System of Central Asia caused by unsanctioned take out of electricity from United Energy System of Central Asia by Tajikistan, Kyrgyz Ministry of Industry, Energy and Fuel Resources said.Kyrgyzstan is holding intensive talks with Kazakhstan now asking it to restore parallel functioning and with Tajikistan to prevent unsanctioned take out of electricity from United Energy System of Central Asia.Due to dry hydrological cycle the water level in reservoirs of Tajikistan has approached the critical level and Tajikistan experiences enormous shortage of electricity.
