Kyrgyz MFA comments on possible participation of servicemen in Syria

The participation of Kyrgyz military in combat operations in Syria was not discussed during the talks in Moscow during Almazbek Atambayev’s state visit to Russia. Kyrgyz Foreign Affairs Minister Erlan Abdyldaev told journalists today.

The Minister noted, however, as for regional security issues in general, they are discussed at various levels within regional and international associations.

In particular, this issue was discussed within the framework of the CSTO at the initiative of the Russian side. Consultations were held. However, this issue didn’t move any further.

Recall, yesterday a number of Russian media reported that Russia offers Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan to send their soldiers to Syria to participate in peacekeeping operations. However, officials of Moscow, Bishkek and Astana didn’t confirm this information.
