President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr President, it is a pleasure to see you.
Our last meeting was not long ago, but the substantial scope of our cooperation means there is always something to discuss.
I am happy that you found an opportunity to stop by on your way home and talk about the current status of our bilateral relations as well as other issues, including integration.
I am very happy to see you. Welcome.
President of the Kyrgyz Republic Sooronbay Jeenbekov: Mr President,
Thank you for the opportunity to meet and discuss topical issues related to our bilateral cooperation. It should be noted that Kyrgyz-Russian relations, brotherly friendship and alliance are developing successfully.
I would like to specifically mention your very successful and productive state visit to Kyrgyzstan. Thanks to your personal support, we signed over 50 agreements worth over $6 billion.
The 8th Russia-Kyrgyzstan Interregional Conference was also a success. With more than 700 participants representing 18 regions, it was the first event of such scale for Kyrgyzstan. And we think it is our shared success. You were personally involved in the organisation of this conference.
The Kyrgyz people have always considered you a true friend of Kyrgyzstan who offered and continues to offer invaluable help in the development of our state. We greatly appreciate this assistance.
It is thanks to your support that the Russian-Kyrgyz Development Fund operates efficiently and allocated $200 million for our country’s adaptation to the Eurasian Economic Union.
We highly appreciate and value Russia’s support of our budget. We hope to see you at the CSTO meeting in Kyrgyzstan.
Vladimir Putin: Yes, indeed.
Sooronbay Jeenbekov: Thank you for your warm welcome.
