DUSHANBE, May 12. /TASS/. Kyrgyzstan is interested in developing trade-and-economic cooperation with Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan’s Prime Minister Sooronbai Zheenbekov said on Thursday at a meeting with Afghanistan’s Chief Executive Adullah Abdullah.
"The sides discussed current issues of Kyrgyz-Afghan cooperation and noted the importance of the implementation of the CASA-1000 energy project and other projects in the area of transport communications," the press service of the Kyrgyz government said.
