to Aleksandr Lukashenko, Kyrgyzstan has done a great job as the CSTO President: “To be honest, you have amazed me. You invested so much
effort this year in arranging all kinds of events in all regions, not
only here, in the south. Events under the aegis of the CSTO were and are
held even in Belarus.”
The President noted that Kyrgyzstan takes the work in the Eurasian Economic
Union very seriously, too. “Kyrgyzstan goes to extraordinary lengths to
make the country a safe place and to improve its economy,” Aleksandr
head of state is convinced that the two countries are well positioned
to increase bilateral trade several times. “We will never be strangers
for you there in the West. If you need something, we are always ready to
get involved and, all things being equal, to choose Kyrgyzstan over
others. We are restoring what was there in the Soviet Union – relations
and trade and we have made great strides in it. We should never stop and
should keep moving forward. If Kyrgyzstan maintains momentum, I am
sure, it will leave all major issues behind in some five years,” the President said.
