MOSCOW (TASS) — Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold talks with his Kyrgyz counterpart Sadyr Japarov in Moscow on February 24, the Kremlin press service said in a statement on Saturday.

The visit will be the first foreign trip of Japarov as head of state.

The two leaders plan to discuss the current relations between the two countries and the prospects for boosting political, trade, economic, cultural and humanitarian cooperation, as well as touch upon pressing issues related to interaction within Eurasian organizations.

According to a statement published on the Kyrgyz president’s website, Japarov is also expected to hold meetings with Russian Federation Council (the upper house of parliament) Chairman Valentina Matviyenko and State Duma (the lower house of parliament) Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin. In addition, he plans to meet with members of Russia’s business community and Kyrgyz nationals residing in the country.

Japarov wrote earlier in an op-ed for the Slovo Kyrgyzstana (“The Word of Kyrgyzstan”) state newspaper that boosting allied ties with Russia was in line with the country’s national interests and there was no alternative to it.

Japarov won Kyrgyzstan’s early presidential election on January 10, receiving 79.2% of the vote.
