ANKARA, September 20./TASS/. Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev is currently under medical surveillance at a hotel of Turkish Izmir, Anadolu Agency reports.
According to the news agency, the Kyrgyz leader felt unwell and complained of chest pains at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport, on his way from Bishkek to New York for a UN General Asembly. He was immediately examined by medics, it said.
Anadolu Agency said "during the night Atambayev arrived by plane at the airport of Izmir, from where he headed to a hotel in Cesme". The president of Kyrgyzstan is still staying at the hotel with an ambulance car parked near it, the news agency said.
"The president has taken a short leave starting from today, prompted by a need to undergo a thorough medical examination," the press service of the Kyrgyz president said earlier on Tuesday.
According to it, Atambayev is expected to get back to work on October 1. "The condition of the head of state raises no concerns," the press service said.
The Kyrgyz delegation to New York will be led by Foreign Minister Erlan Abdyldayev.
