Our party is ready to assist US government after 2014 in view of Kyrgyz people interests, opinion and security.
Defense Ministry reports with reference to results of negotiations between Kyrgyzstan Defense Council Secretary Busurmankul Tabaldiev and Head of US Central Command James N. Mattis.
According the ministry, the Defense Council Secretary stressed that Kyrgyz-American relations are developing rapidly and expressed gratitude to US government for technical support of Kyrgyz law machinery in framework of terrorism fighting, narcotic illegal trafficking and borders’ security programs.
Counterparts admitted that main threats to Kyrgyzstan are new challenges and threats from Afghanistan. “Kyrgyzstan is interested in security promotion and stability in this country and ready to participate in world community initiatives aimed at support of Afghanistan. Kyrgyz party expressed readiness to help US government after 2014 in view of Kyrgyz people interests, opinion and security,” informs Kyrgyz Defense Ministry.
Recall, earlier President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev announced that Manas Transition Center will be closed in summer 2014 when the bilateral agreement ends. Later, during his official visit in Turkey, he corrected himself and said that military personnel should be in civic airport and offered to convert Manas Center into transportation hub. Some experts consider that Manas airbase won’t be close in 2014. It will continue its work in new framework offered by official Bishkek. Many people think that price of foreign military officers presence will increase because it is main goal of Kyrgyz authorities.
