 Speakers of the Parliaments of Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan discuss current state of bilateral relations

Bishkek, November 24 / Kabar /. As part of participation in the meetings of the Interparliamentary Assembly of the Commonwealth of Independent States (IPA CIS) and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO PA) Speaker of the Kyrgyz Parliament Chynybay Tursunbekov met today with chairman of the Majilis of the Parliament of Kazakhstan Nurlan Nigmatulin.

The press service of the Kyrgyz Parliament reports that, the meeting participants discussed a wide range of issues, in particular, the sides exchanged views on the current state of bilateral relations.

Tursunbekov said that in order to expand and deepen the partnership the sides need to develop inter-parliamentary relations. "In recent years we have achieved good progress in bilateral co-operation, for example, a protocol is signed on October 17 according to which citizens of Kyrgyzstan can stay in Kazakhstan without registration up to 30 days, and the citizens of Kazakhstan in Kyrgyzstan - up to 90 days. To date, it is necessary to carry out the process of ratification of this document," he said.

The Kyrgyz Speaker believes that countries also need to continue the development of inter-parliamentary cooperation in the framework of the CIS, CSTO, SCO, UN, OIC, TurkPA and other international alliances.

In addition, Tursunbekov stressed that Kazakhstan is one of the strategic partners of Kyrgyzstan, including in trade and economic activity of the Kyrgyz Republic. He also expressed hope that the removal phytosanitary control on the Kyrgyz-Kazakh border will lead to the expansion of trade and economic relations.

In turn, Nigmatullin, noting the importance of interparliamentary cooperation in the development of bilateral relations between the two sister republics, said that all the issues will be resolved through negotiations.

The heads of the two parliaments also discussed cultural and educational ties. The participants agreed to hold Days of Culture of Kazakhstan in Kyrgyzstan and Days of Culture of Kyrgyzstan in Kazakhstan in 2018 in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations and the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of eternal friendship.

The parliamentary delegation headed by Speaker of the Jogorku Kenesh of the Kyrgyz Republic Chynybai Tursunbekov is visiting St. Petersburg to attend the meeting of CIS IPA and CSTO PA.
