BISHKEK, September 21. /TASS/. Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev continues undergoing a medical examination in Turkey, the presidential press service told TASS on Wednesday, after the president felt unwell on Tuesday on his way to New York.
"The president undergoes a medical examination in keeping with the plans. His condition is normal, today he has made a statement, expressing his opinion concerning a referendum on amendments to republic’s Constitution," the press service said, adding that Atambayev "will remain on a short leave until October 1".
Due to health problems, Atambayev had to cancel his working trip to New York where he was due to have taken part in the general debate at the UN General Assembly.
The Kyrgyz leader felt unwell and complained of chest pains at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport, on his way from Bishkek to New York. Turkish medics examined him right at the airport, saying he had symptoms of a heart problem necessitating a through medical examination.
Earlier, the presidential press service told Tass that hospitalization was not discussed at the moment. "This issue may emerge after the president undergoes a relevant medical examination," it said, noting that this would happen only "in case of necessity".
The presidential administration did not rule out that the president could be back in Bishkek before October 1.
The Kyrgyz delegation to New York will be led by Foreign Minister Erlan Abdyldayev.
