MOSCOW, March 13. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold talks with his Kyrgyz counterpart, Almazbek Atambayev, in St.Petersburg Monday, the Kremlin press service said on Friday.

The two leaders will discuss "key issues of further consolidation of Russian-Kyrgyz cooperation, mainly in the trade, investment, energy, cultural and humanitarian fields," the press service said.

Putin and Atambayev will also focus on Kyrgyzstan's accession to the Eurasian Economic Union, the press service added.

Earlier this month, Atambayev said his country’s upcoming joining the EEU would become an impetus for expanding mutually advantageous cooperation with Russia and its regions.

Kyrgyzstan signed an agreement on accession to the EEU in December 2014. By May 2015, it plans to settle all technical issues needed to be granted full-fledged membership in this organization.

The new integration association — the EEU — started operating on January 1 this year, replacing the Eurasian Economic Community, which officially ceased to exist in October. The union includes Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia. Membership is open to other states assessed as sharing the assembly's aims and principles, its founders say.
