BISHKEK, July 15 (Itar-Tass) - China will continue rendering comprehensive aid to Kyrgyzstan, Chinese Foreign Affairs Minister Wang Yi said here on Monday, commenting on a meeting with his Kyrgyzstani counterpart Erlan Abdyldayev.
“We are rendering assistance to Kyrgyzstan, processing from the needs of the republic,” Wang said, that his country gives the aid without no additional conditions. In his words, some Chinese parameters exceed those in Kyrgyzstan, but this fact does not impede interaction of the two sides on absolutely equal terms.
Currently, Kyrgyzstan implements several large-scale economic projects owing to the investments from China. Among such projects are the construction of a high-voltage electric transmission line Kemin-Datka and reconstruction of the Bishkek Torugart international highway. The countries of the region are going construct a railway from China to Uzbekistan via Kyrgyzstan. Besides, China plans to build a hydropower plant on the Sarydzhaz River in the Issyk-Kul region of Kyrgyzstan. The fulfilment of the above projects is expected to cost several billion U.S. dollars.
Wang believes that now Kyrgyzstan, which plays an important geopolitical role, has a colossal potential for development. “Kyrgyzstan has good prospects for development,” the Chinese foreign minister said, adding, “It is of huge importance that the republic takes steps to stabilize the situation in the country.”
Wang Yi arrived in Kyrgyzstan two days ago to take part in the meeting of the Foreign Ministers Council of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization that was held here on July 13. The participants in the meeting discussed the program of the upcoming SCO summit due to be held in Bishkek in September 2013.
