BISHKEK, February 6 (Itar-Tass) – Russia seeks to create a logistics centre on the base of Bishkek’s international airport of Manas, Russian Deputy Transport Minister Valery Okulov said.
During the meeting with his Kyrgyz colleague Kalymbek Sultanov on Wednesday, Okulov said, “This will make it possible increase traffic of cargo flow to South East Asian countries via the Manas airport. We rivet much attention to working out a business plan on this project.”
“Till recently we’ve been one country and our peoples have the common past. I’m sure that we’ll have the common future. Kyrgyzstan and Russia are strategic partners. The meeting of our presidents proved the priority of further strengthening of close relations between our countries,” Sultanov said.
Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev reiterated that a civil hub was planning to be set up in Manas after American troops leave the airport in the summer 2014. Their airbase has been stationed on the territory of Manas since December 2001.
At the same time, the Kyrgyz president said within different formats that Kyrgyzstan refused to extend the agreement on the deployment of U.S. troops in Bishkek. The airport of Manas is located 23 kilometres from the Kyrgyz capital. It is designed to handle about 200,000 tonnes of cargoes per year, the Ministry of Transport and Communications reported.
