US Ambassador wishes Happy New Year to all Kyrgyzstani

Bishkek, December 29 / Kabar /. US Ambassador Sheila Gwaltney released New Year greeting to all Kyrgyzstani.

“I want to wish our friends, neighbors and partners in the Kyrgyz Republic a delightful and joyous holiday celebration. This is a time of year for family, friends and community. On behalf of the American staff of the U.S. Mission, I express appreciation for the smiles and warm hospitality that we enjoy each day here in the Kyrgyz Republic.

This is also a season for reflection. This year we marked the 25th anniversary of our bilateral partnership and took the opportunity to look back on all we have accomplished as partners and friends. Even while reflecting on the past, we are building an even stronger partnership for the future. This year has been an exceptionally busy and productive one, in which the Kyrgyz Republic welcomed numerous high-level visitors from the United States, including our Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs and a large congressional delegation.

Aside from our many official contacts, this has been a rich year for cultural person-to-person exchanges between our countries. American musical envoys were delighted to perform with the Kyrgyz ensemble Ordo Sakhna, producing melodies that truly reflected the best of our two cultures. And we were honored to participate in and support the Second World Nomad Games. While our Wyoming cowboys may not have returned home as kokboru champions, I know they left with an abiding sense of the warmth, hospitality and sportsmanship of the Kyrgyz people, and that they are eager to return.

It is a great honor for me, my staff and for America to celebrate 25 years of partnership with the Kyrgyz Republic, and now -- we look forward to the next 25 years, and far beyond.

Thank you, and happy holidays to all.

May the New Year bring you great health, happiness, and prosperity and may it be a year of continued progress for our two countries,” says in the greeting.
