Agreement with the United States on placing Manas Transit Center on the territory of the Kyrgyz Republic terminated officially  

11/07/14 08:17, Bishkek – 24.kg news agency, 

Today the agreement with the United States on location of Manas Transit Center on the territory of the Kyrgyz Republic is terminated officially. The U.S. airbase is closed.

Recall, Manas airbase was established in December 2001 to support a broad coalition forces in "Operation Enduring Freedom" in Afghanistan. In 2010 the new President Almazbek Atambayev stated that military facility is out of place in civil airport and it must be closed.

More than 200 hectares of land were allocated for the Transit Center, where the United States has established a modern infrastructure for military contingent of the coalition. All equipment and property totaling $30 million was left in Kyrgyzstan. It is worth noting that local media, as well as social networks reported that enterprising Kyrgyz began a brisk trade of property of the American military facility on the Internet. In particular, everyone was offered military tents for $600. The National Guard representatives, charged with protection of the territory and property, assured that transferred inventory property is not sold or exported.

According to the Ministry of Defense, it is assumed that here, on the place of airbase, now one unit of the National Guard of the Kyrgyz Republic will be deployed here.

U.S. soldiers left the base at Manas International Airport a few weeks ago. And today, on July 11, the base officially ceased to exist. During its existence, the U.S. Air Force tankers participated in 33,500 military operations and produced in-flight refueling for 135,000 aircrafts. Since 2001, over 5.3 million soldiers from 26 countries, who participated in the anti-terrorist operation in Afghanistan, passed through Transit Center.
