Bishkek, November 24 / Kabar /. Speaker of the Jogorku Kenesh Chynybay Tursunbekov within the framework 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) in St. Petersburg, met with Chairman of the Russian State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin.

The press service of the Kyrgyz Parliament reports that, Tursunbekov stressed an important role of inter-parliamentary ties in the development of bilateral cooperation.

Speaker Tursunbekov also focused on partnership within the EEU. "Kyrgyzstan’s joining the EEU opens up new opportunities to attract major investments and economic growth.

In addition, Tursunbekov noted the need to strengthen the activities of the Kyrgyz-Russian fund and expressed the hope that under the EEU the trade relations between Russia and Kyrgyzstan will be improved despite the reduction in the volume of trade in recent years. He also added that it is necessary to work together in the field of expansion of economic cooperation and attracting investments.

In turn, chairman of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Vyacheslav Volodin assured that all the issues will be resolved as a result of bilateral negotiations, as it is necessary within the framework of the EEU to strengthen comprehensive ties.
