During the bilateral meeting, the head of the Kyrgyz Cabinet of Ministers expressed hope that the elections held in Afghanistan would ensure stability in the region.

«Kyrgyz-Afghan relations are developing dynamically. However, I believe that their potential is higher. At the moment, there is low trade performance between our countries. I am sure that we will be able to contribute to creation of favorable conditions for business and development of trade and economic relations,» said Mukhammedkaly Abylgaziev.
