BISHKEK, 4 March. /TASS/. Kyrgyzstan’s President Almazbek Atambayev says his country’s upcoming joining the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) will become an impetus for expanding mutually advantageous cooperation with Russia and its regions.
"Kyrgyzstan pays much attention to development of relations with its major partner - Russia, including development of relations with its regions," the president said during a meeting with Tatarstan’s President Rustam Minnikhanov. "Joining the Eurasian Economic Union would offer to our republic wider and deeper bilateral contacts in various spheres."
Tatarstan’s president said about the importance of developing bilateral relations. "We can see many mutual interests," he said. The countries had agreed to establish an intergovernmental commission on trade, economic, scientific, technical, cultural and humanitarian cooperation.
Tatarstan’s president is now on a two-day working visit in Kyrgyzstan. In Bishkek (the capital city) he has visited the Tatar diaspora, participated in a business forum and met with Prime Minister Dzhoomart Otorbayev. The annual trade turnover between Kyrgyzstan and Tatarstan is between $25 and $50 million.
