Kyrgyz president due in Tehran

BISHKEK, Aug. 29 (MNA) – According to an Iranian diplomat, Kyrgyz President will pay an official visit to Iran next week.

The Iranian ambassador to Bishkek Ali Najafi told the reporters about Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev travelling to Tehran at the head of a high-ranking politico-economic delegation.

Ali Najafi added that the visit is made at the official invitation of Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani.

During his three-day stay in Tehran, the Kyrgyz president is slated to exchange views with his Iranian counterpart and other top officials on ways to further improve mutual ties, according to Iranian ambassador.

The first presidential visit to Iran from Kyrgyzstan in the last 10 years is aimed at fostering Iran-Kyrgyzstan all-out relations.

He noted that Iran and Kyrgyzstan will also sign documents to strengthen cooperation in different sectors.

Rouhani paid an official visit to Kyrgyzstan in September 2013 to attend the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit. On the sidelines of the summit, he held talks with his Kyrgyz counterpart and a number of other senior officials taking part in the event.

Kyrgyzstan, China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan are the six permanent members of the SCO.  Iran, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Belarus and Mongolia have observer status at the organization.
