"I am very glad to see you again. Thank you very much for your kind words. I fully agree with your high assessment of the state of bilateral relations between our countries", said President of the Kyrgyz Republic Sadyr Zhaparov in a meeting with President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev, APA reports.
He noted that in recent years, our intergovernmental relations have reached the highest level: "I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and our Azerbaijani friends for the warm hospitality extended to me and the members of our delegation. I would like to note that I am sure that we will have a constructive discussion and exchange of ideas on the current issues of cooperation between the Kyrgyz Republic and the Republic of Azerbaijan today".
Sadyr Zhaparov emphasized that Kyrgyzstan values the friendly relations and mutual support with Azerbaijan, which is our strategic partner: "This year, our countries celebrated the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations. We have approached this significant date with remarkable results. Last year, there were two high-level meetings: the Interstate Council was established at the level of heads of state and its first meeting was held. The ever-strengthening and expanding high-level relations have created conditions for active interaction between parliaments, governments and relevant ministries. In 2022, a number of agreements reached during our reciprocal visits acquired practical proportions thanks to the fifth meeting of the Joint Intergovernmental Commission on Economic and Humanitarian Cooperation, which was held in Cholpon-Ata under the chairmanship of the deputy heads of government on July 26 this year. We actively cooperate in international organizations and support each other in the nomination of candidates".
