Kyrgyzstan recently pitched for improving its relationship with India so far as the culture and business sectors are concerned. The Central Asian Republic also proposed to commit the coming 25 years to enhance economic ties between the two nations.
Addressing the press at the inauguration of the Indo-Kyrgyz Business Investment Forum that was conducted by the PHD Chamber of Commerce, Samargiul Adamkulova, Ambassador of Kyrgyz Republic to India, stated “This is a special event as we are celebrating 25 years of establishment of diplomatic relations with India. Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited our country in 2015 and after 13 years our President came to India on a state visit last year. I see big scope for cooperation in political, cultural and economic sectors. And, both of the countries should dedicate the next 25 years to building more business and economic ties between the two of us.”
She went on to add, “We hope this event is just a beginning of more people-to-people and business-to-business cooperation. The Kyrgyz business delegates are present here and open to discuss opportunities in our country. We hope this is a starting point for achieving a milestone in our co-operation.”
The diplomat further revealed that a direct flight from Delhi – the capital of India, to Bishkek – the capital of Kyrgyzstan, has aided in improving bilateral ties between the countries. Another senior official of the Kyrgyz Republic revealed that the country has access to a flourishing market as it is a member of the Eurasian Economic Union.
The President of the Kyrgyz Republic, Almazbek Atambayev, visited India on the 18th of December last year, and during this State visit, both parties said that they were satisfied with the way bilateral relations were growing whilst reaffirming their enthusiasm to further improve multifaceted cooperation.
Both, the Kyrgyz Republic and India are democratic nations that share mutual fundamental values like human rights, freedom, the rule of law, and democracy, and have reiterated their desire to enhance Kyrgyz-Indian relations.
