There are forces that want to harm the Kyrgyz-Chinese relations. The First Deputy Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan Kubatbek Boronov stated at a press conference.
According to him, there is a special work to destabilize the situation in the country using the theme of Chinese expansion. «They say that if Kyrgyzstan does not pay its debts to China, it will give a part of the country’s territory. This is not true, we do not have such an agreement and it cannot be. This theme is exaggerated by people trying to harm our bilateral relations,» said Kubatbek Boronov.
