President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev: Mr Atambayev, I would like to welcome you once again and congratulate you on the start of the work. You managed to plunge into the thick of the debates straight away and to take an active part. I think this is a guarantee of successful multilateral cooperation.
I propose that we talk about the development of bilateral relations between Russia and Kyrgyzstan and look at the most recent events as well as ways to make our cooperation more robust, more powerful and rich in various aspects of our interaction.
President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev: Thank you for your warm wishes, Mr Medvedev.
I am very glad to meet you and very happy to have this opportunity to speak with you. I am confident that we will discuss a number of urgent issues and find solutions to many of them.
Dmitry Medvedev: Agreed.
