Most likely, the CIS Summit in Bishkek will focus on the results of 25 years - Igor Shestakov

Bishkek, September 14/ Kabar /. The meeting of the CIS Summit will likely sum up 25 years of activity of the organization, political scientist Igor Shestakov told Kabar Agency.

He said that, despite the fact that the CIS as an organization has experienced severe crises, especially in the late 90s, when it was about the fact that it may disintegrate, the Commonwealth of Independent States remained.

"We can expect from the summit that there will be certain reforms in the CIS. The organization is a platform for inter-state dialogue, consultations on certain issues and the strengthening of trade and economic relations and security. After the new integration, as Eurasian Economic Union, some CIS countries have an opportunity to build a dialogue in this direction," said Igor Shestakov.

In addition, the analyst believes that specific strategies will be developed in regard to two issues: the economy and security.

Also Igor Shestakov said that in case of arrival of acting President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev, there may be bilateral consultations on the situation in Uzbekistan.

"I do not think that the specific statement will be made on Uzbekistan. Most likely, the CIS countries will monitor for a while. I think that the current leadership of Uzbekistan in cooperation with an organization such as the Commonwealth of Independent States does not fundamentally change its position. I think the policy of Islam Karimov will remain relevant for a long time in Uzbekistan," said Shestakov.

In addition, he did not exclude that the President of Kyrgyzstan uses the CIS platform for consultations on border issues.

"Especially that Kyrgyzstan this year presides over the CIS. Almazbek Atambayev has already commented on the situation on the Ungar-Too mountain and made it clear that Kyrgyzstan supports constructive dialogue. Also, I believe that in a bilateral format, President Atambayev and President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev will discuss the issue on creation of favorable transportation of goods from our country to EEU countries. Because today there are some problems in this direction," said Igor Shestakov.
