MOSCOW, September 20. /TASS/. The Kremlin wishes an early recovery for Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev, who is undergoing a medical examination, President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.
In reply to reporters’ queries, the spokesman said he had no additional information about Atambayev’s health apart from what media reported.
Earlier, the press service of the Kyrgyz leader said Atambayev had taken a short leave to undergo a medical examination.
According to it, Atambayev is expected to get back to work on October 1. "The condition of the head of state raises no concerns," the press service said.
Because of health problems, the Kyrgyz leader had to cancel a working trip to New York, where he was due to have taken part in debates at a session of the UN General Assembly.
He felt unwell at the Ataturk Airport in Istanbul, where he made a stopover on the way to the US. He had a medical exam right at the airport, and Turkish medics said the president had symptoms of heart problems necessitating a thorough medical examination.
The Kyrgyz delegation to the session will be led by Foreign Minister Erlan Abdyldayev.
