MOSCOW, November 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Russia and Kyrgyzstan should be ready when coalition forces leave Afghanistan in 2014.
“The task is not easy and many risks arouse,” Shoigu said in a meeting with Kyrgyz counterpart Taalibek Omuraliyev on Thursday.
The Russian minister also pointed to a possibility to discuss cooperation between the ministries of both countries.
“This year we’ve prepared a big and substantial plan on military-technical cooperation. I’m sure that we’ll carry out the plan. Much depends on us and on you,” he said, adding “We feel equal to the task.”
The Russian and Kyrgyz ministers met on the sidelines of the 65th session of the Council of CIS Defense Ministers currently underway in Moscow.
