Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks at a meeting with President of the Kyrgyz Republic Sooronbay Jeenbekov, Bishkek, May 22, 2019
I would like to convey the warmest wishes from President of Russia Vladimir Putin to you. He recalls his visit with pleasure, including your traditional hospitality and the visit’s content.
You have mentioned the forum of rectors, and the interregional and youth forums also took place. Kyrgyzstan hosted the Days of Russian Culture in keeping with the agreement between you and Vladimir Putin. The programme was extremely packed, not to mention the contents of the signed documents. The Joint Statement by the President of Russia and the President of the Kyrgyz Republic is a powerful policy document. We will also fulfil departmental agreements that have been signed. Some of these are already being implemented. I am now ready to discuss this matter with you. We are monitoring the work of the departments that are fulfilling the decisions adopted by you and Vladimir Putin.
