Sapar Isakov: Kyrgyzstan's rapid growth will be associated with Steven Seagal

«You are a great friend of our country, the inspirational figure of the Nomad Games, and the rapid growth of our country will be associated with your name, because the cultural component plays a big role for any country,» the Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan Sapar Isakov said at a meeting with the American film actor Steven Seagal in Bishkek.

As the head of government noted, the Hollywood star is a symbol of the World Nomad Games.

«We hope that even more attention of the world community will be attracted to the World Nomad Games with your help,» Sapar Isakov said.

The head of government offered the high guest to become a citizen of Kyrgyzstan.

Steven Seagal noted that after the Games the flow of tourists to Kyrgyzstan increased two-fold, and he wished the republic even more tourists.

The Hollywood star told he would like to visit Kyrgyzstan more often, but the way there takes a lot of time.

«This time, I was in Mongolia, at my son’s birthday, and when I incidentally saw the flight to Kyrgyzstan, I immediately flew here,» he said.

The head of the government conveyed to him greetings from the President Almazbek Atambayev, who is currently in Sochi, and then flies to New York for a meeting of the UN General Assembly.
