MOSCOW, October 8 (Itar-Tass) — Russia will take measures to discuss Kyrgyzstan’s application for opening a science and culture centre in Moscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
After the talks with Kyrgyz Foreign Minister Erlan Abdyldayev on Monday, Lavrov said, “We’re pleased with the activity of the Kyrgyz-Russian Slavic University, the first educational project on the post-Soviet space. We’re ready to expand the number of scholarships given to Kyrgyzstan. This is done by MGIMO [the Moscow State Institute of Foreign Relations] and the Diplomatic Academy.”
“Recently the Days of Kyrgyzstan Culture in Russia have been held. Today and tomorrow the Days of Marina Tsvetaeva’s Poetry will be held in Bishkek. They are organised on the occasion of the 120th anniversary of the poet. In the future Kyrgyzstan will mark the 180th anniversary of Chinghiz Aitmatov. We agreed to prepare a programme to celebrate this landmark event,” the Russian minister said.
“Since last year the Russian Science and Culture Centre has worked in Bishkek. Today we’ve discussed Kyrgyzstan’s strive for opening the similar institution in Moscow.” “We’ll wait for a corresponding application and we’ll take all steps to consider this issue operatively,” he said.
Commenting on the protection of compatriots’ rights, Lavrov stressed that their state “arouses keen interest”.
“Kyrgyzstan is one of the countries where the Russian language was granted the official status. We rivet much attention to the status of the Russian language in Kyrgyzstan and we are assured that all rights will be observed.” “If there are concrete facts saying the rights of our compatriots are infringed upon, we will discuss them immediately and discuss with the Kyrgyz colleagues,” the Russian foreign minister said.
