Chynybay Tursunbekov: Kyrgyzstan is interested in visa free regime with Iran

Bishkek, December 16 / Kabar /. Speaker of the Kyrgyz Parliament Chynybay Tursunbekov met on Friday here in Bishkek with Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Kyrgyzstan Ali Mojtaba Ruzbehani.

The press service of the Parliament reports that, the sides discussed a wide range of issues concerning the strengthening of cooperation in political, trade and economic spheres, as well as the further development of inter-parliamentary dialogue.

The Kyrgyz Speaker congratulated Ali Mojtaba Ruzbehani on the beginning of his diplomatic mission in Kyrgyzstan. "The relationship with Iran is a priority for us. Between our countries there are no contradictions, both within the framework of bilateral cooperation, as well as in multilateral formats. We reacted positively to the adoption and the practical implementation of "comprehensive plan of action to resolve the situation around the Iranian nuclear program." I am convinced that the abolition of sanctions will positively impact not only on the economy of Iran, but also other countries, including Kyrgyzstan," Chynybay Tursunbekov said.

Chynybay Tursunbekov stated with regret that the turnover between Kyrgyzstan and Iran does not meet the existing potential, and therefore called for joint efforts to enhance cooperation in trade and economic sphere.

In turn, Ali Mojtaba Ruzbehani congratulated Chynybay Tursunbekov and Kyrgyz people on the successful holding of the referendum on constitutional changes. He said that Kyrgyzstan is rightly considered the most democratic republic in the region.

The Ambassador agreed with the Speaker’s opinion on the need to strengthen cooperation in trade and economic sphere. He stressed that the simplification of visa procedures and the establishment of direct air links between the two countries would have a positive impact on the increase in turnover and the number of tourists from Iran to Kyrgyzstan.

Chynybay Tursunbekov said that the abolition of the visa regime with Iran is interesting for Kyrgyzstan and requires careful consideration. "We are certainly interested in attracting Iranian investments and tourists. Therefore, we need to work together to address all the barriers to full cooperation," he concluded.
