MOSCOW, January 16, 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian and Kyrgyz representatives discussed prospects for developing cooperation in the field of migration at the inter-departmental consultations involving the leadership of the Foreign Ministry, migration, border and other agencies, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Thursday.
Russia was represented by Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin and Kyrgyzstan by his counterpart Erines Otorbayev. The consultations also included first deputy head of the Federal Migration Service Yekaterina Yegorova and deputy head of the FSB Border Guard Service Vladimir Mochalov, the ministry said.
