President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev today commented on the situation on the border with Kazakhstan at the awarding of scholarships to the best students.
«Today we see problems on the Kyrgyz-Kazakh border. Some people say that all transport routes run from Kyrgyzstan only through Kazakhstan. It is not true. We have other neighbors. I remember how we were turned off both the electricity and the gas. But now we have excellent relations with Uzbekistan, as well as with China and Tajikistan. And, of course, we need to look for other ways for sale of our products,» he said.
"In fact, Kyrgyzstan is cut off from Russia. And the president of Kazakhstan, I think, does not even think about it. Nazarbayev’s environment is oligarchs who do not think about Kazakhstan and Nazarbayev, but about their future: their accounts are in Western banks, "Almazbek Atambayev added.
