Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s opening remarks during talks with Foreign Minister of Kyrgyzstan Ruslan Kazakbaev, Moscow, October 23, 2020
Welcome to Moscow.
This year the usual rhythm of our contacts at all levels has largely been adjusted by the coronavirus, and recently by developments in Kyrgyzstan as well. We watched them with concern and are pleased to note that the situation is calming down. We hope to continue constructive cooperation both bilaterally and within our integration associations in the spirit of continuity that has always been characteristic of our relations regardless of events in any country.
Today we will discuss our plans to further strengthen our alliance and strategic partnership in all areas.
We are glad to see you. Welcome.
