Summary/Abstract: In 1595—1596, two Khans from Shaybanids’ dynasty (Abdallah of Bukhara and Kuchum of Sibir) exchanged charters. The article presents the first complete publication of these documents. The charters allow to judge about equitable status of the parties, which adds to the critics of the take-on of Sibir Khanate as a vassal of Bukhara Khanate. Muslim clerics, sayyid Din-Ali and hafiz Ighiberdei, being intermarried to Kuchums, acted as ambassadors. Along with Siberian-Bukharan cooperation, there was also discussed the land dispute issue between Kuchum and the Altyuli-Nogai leader Aulia. From the context, it is clear, that it was about the entailed territories of Siberian Shaybanids in the Aral Sea region. The dispute resolution, as well as the summit at large, laid the basis for uniting Sibir, Bukhara and Nogai and a joint march of Kuchum and Aulia on Tara. The published charters make the history of Sibir Khanate under Kuchum’s late rule be re-thought, which adds to the necessity of publishing the Siberian documents available in the Russian State Archives of Ancient Documents, Moscow.
