ASTANA, February 22 (Itar-Tass) — Kazakhstan will take part in the construction of thermal and hydro power plants in Kyrgyzstan, Kyrgyz Prime Minister Omurbek Babanov said after the talks with the Kazakh authorities on Wednesday.
“We invited Kazakhstan to take part in the construction of hydro power plants, in particular of the Kambarata-1 project. We’ve reached an agreement to set up working groups to develop the terms for Kazakhstan’s accession to the project,” he told a news conference at the Kazakh government.
Kyrgyzstan also proposed its neighbor to build a thermal power plant at the Kara Kech coal field.
“We’ve agreed that Kazakhstan will prepare a feasibility study for the Almaty-Kemin power transmission line. Kyrgyzstan plans to begin the construction of the Datka-Kemin power transmission line in March. Thus, I think we will ensure electric power supply to southern Kazakhstan, northern Kyrgyzstan and stable operation of our countries’ energy systems in general,” Babanov said.
The Kyrgyz prime minister said during his visit to Kazakhstan he reached an agreement on the creation of a joint investment fund.
“This is good support for our economy and mutual cooperation,” he said.
Moreover, the top officials agreed to lift restrictions for the export of dairy products from Kyrgyzstan to Kazakhstan.
Kazakhstan proposed to ease up migration rules – Kyrgyz migrants can stay on the territory of the neighbouring republic for 90 days without re-registration.
Babanov noted that Kazakhstan had taken a decision to consider the opening of border crossing points that were closed.
“The Kazakh president decided to build a modern school in the town of Osh as a measure of support for our southern regions,” he said.
