BISHKEK, September 19 /TASS/. Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev had to cut short his visit to New York for health reasons on Monday, the Kyrgyz president’s press service told TASS.
According to the press service, Atambayev flew to New York via Bishkek on Monday where he had planned to attend the general debate of the 71 session of the United Nations General Assembly.
"The president felt badly at Ataturk international airport. He underwent a preliminary medical examination," the press service said.
