Prime Minister Vladimir Putin held a meeting with Kyrgyz Prime Minister Igor Chudinov

During the meeting Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and his Kyrgyz counterpart, Igor Chudinov, discussed cooperation between the ministries of Russia and Kyrgyzstan.

Transcript of the beginning of the meeting:

Vladimir Putin: Mr Prime Minister, it is my pleasure to welcome you. Our previous meeting took place not long ago. I am glad that we so actively continue our dialogue in all areas.

I know that cooperation development issues were discussed in detail at our ministries and agencies. Today I am ready to go into the agreements reached recently.

Igor Chudinov: Thank you, Mr Prime Minister.

It's true that today's meeting with the three ministries was most fruitful. In my opinion, the matters we discussed at the previous meeting were thoroughly worked out. I hope that we will be able to find answers to all these questions today.
