The head of the Kyrgyz Republic thanked the guest for his visit to the republic on the day of opening of the customs borders between the two countries. The meeting is held at Rukh Ordo national cultural center in Cholpon-Ata city before the teleconference with opening of borders at "Akzhol-avtodorozhny" checkpoint.

"It is a great pleasure to talk to you and listen to your advice, I am glad of the coming of the leader of one of the advanced countries in the world," the head of Kyrgyzstan states.

Just today the Prime Minister of the KR Temir Sariev and the First Deputy Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Bakytzhan Sagintayev are taking part in the opening of borders at "Akzhol-avtodorozhny" customs checkpoint.

In connection with accession of the KR to the EEU customs control on the border with Kazakhstan is canceled.
