MOSCOW, October 8 (Itar-Tass) — Russia supports Kyrgyzstan’s accession to the Customs Union and the Common Economic Space, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after the talks with his Kyrgyz counterpart Erlan Abdyldayev on Monday.
“We held useful talks and discussed the 20th anniversary of diplomatic relations,” he said. “Russian President Vladimir Putin’s official visit to Kyrgyzstan in September culminated this.”
Lavrov noted that Russia and Kyrgyzstan reached principal agreements that take relations to a qualitatively new level in such areas as financial, military and humanitarian.
“The main task is to ensure the implementation of these agreements,” he said. “Russian and Kyrgyz foreign ministries will take efforts to coordinate the relevant departments’ activities.”
“We also discussed cooperation within the framework of the UN, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the CIS and the Collective Security Treaty Organization. In December Kyrgyzstan will take over the presidency of the Collective Security Treaty Organization. Our friends and partners will preside over the SCO in 2013. We will closely cooperate within the framework of Kyrgyzstan’s presidency,” the diplomat said.
He emphasized that the parties were satisfied with the talks that proved fruitful.
“We will fulfill what we agreed upon in compliance with the presidents’ decisions,” Lavrov said.
Abdyldayev said in turn that the talks focused on the whole range of bilateral cooperation.
“A special focus was placed on the recent visit of the Russian president to Bishkek, when a range of significant agreements was signed,” he said.
He highlighted that the positions of Russia and Kyrgyzstan coincide in all issues as never before.
