BISHKEK, October 8 (Itar-Tass) - Problems of regional security, humanitarian cooperation and the development of inter-parliamentary relations will be the key topics to be discussed in Kyrgyzstan on Tuesday by speaker of the State Duma lower house of Russia’s parliament Sergei Naryshkin. He will visit the Russian airbase in Kant and hold a meeting of the Council of the Parliamentary Assembly (PA) of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO).
On Monday, during an official visit to Tajikistan, Naryshkin said that the CSTO PA Council meeting would discuss “issues related to the situation in the north-eastern provinces of Afghanistan and on the Tajik-Afghan border.” “This issue is important, so are closely following (it),” he stressed.
The speaker stated that the upcoming withdrawal of the coalition forces from Afghanistan in 2014 would become “an important factor that will determine the situation in this restive region.” “We have to prepare for it, and we are preparing,” he said.
In addition, the State Duma speaker during his visit to Kyrgyzstan plans to meet with President Almazbek Atambayev and chairman of the country’s parliament Asylbek Jeenbekov.
He will also visit the Kyrgyz-Russian Yeltsin Slavic University.
According to Russia’s delegation member, head of the Duma Committee on CIS Affairs Leonid Slutsky, “the visit to Bishkek will make it possible to make significant progress on the Kyrgyzstan direction.” “Hopefully, it will open a new page for closer cooperation and in terms of connection to the Eurasian project,” he added.
