What prime ministers of Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan discussed

Head of the Government of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbai Jeenbekov yesterday held talks with his Kazakh counterpart Bakytzhan Sagintayev.

According to him, today there are several important issues that require the decision and support of the Kazakh side.

«At the last meeting we agreed on some issues on changing the status of «Tokmok avtodorozhnyi» and «Kenbulun avtodorozhnyi» checkpoints from the bilateral to the multilateral. On the consideration of the Kazakh side, there is a draft protocol on the introduction of amendments and additions to the relevant agreement. The construction of the bridge at the checkpoints «Ak-Tilek avtodorozhnyi» (KR) and «Karasuu» (Kazakhstan) is also included in the protocol of the intergovernmental council. I would like to ask you to speed up the solution of these issues,» Sooronbai Jeenbekov said.

He thanked Kazakhstan for ratifying the agreement on the allocation of $ 100 million as technical assistance in the framework of the accession of the KR to the EEU. The Republic of Kazakhstan occupies a leading place in the inflow of foreign direct investment in the Kyrgyz Republic.

Bakytzhan Sagintayev stressed that over the past year, almost all issues find common understanding. In turn, he thanked the Kyrgyz side for missing tourists on the tourist trails in the summer.
