Almazbek Atambayev takes part in 72nd session of UN General Assembly in New York

President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev participates in the work of the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly during his working visit to New York. Information Policy Department of the Presidential Administration reported.

The theme of the current debate is «With an emphasis on man: in striving for peace and a decent life for all on a sustainable planet».

In 2015, Almazbek Atambayev abandoned visit to the US because of the parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan. In 2016, he flew to New York, but during a flight from Bishkek to Istanbul, the Kyrgyz leader complained of malaise and chest pain. Turkish doctors have diagnosed Almazbek Atambayev with heart problems. As a result, the president took a short vacation and did not get to New York.
