Foreign Minister of Kyrgyz Republic Chingiz Azamatovich Aidarbekov received Ambassador Faisal Niaz Tirmizi on 8th January, 2019. This was Ambassador’s first official call on the newly appointed Foreign Minister of the Kyrgyz Republic.

Ambassador assured him that Pakistan would be attending the forthcoming SCO Summit in Bishkek in June 2019 at the highest level. Ambassador also appraised the Kyrgyz Foreign Minister on his calls on the President of Pakistan and other senior officials during his visit to Pakistan. The President Arif Alvi of Pakistan had underscored the need to increase people-to-people and business-to-business contacts between the two countries through promotion of tourism and trade. Over 2000 Pakistani students are already contributing around US$ 13 to 15 a year to the Kyrgyz economy and this figure was likely to go up in years to come. Both sides also reiterated the need for more parliamentary and business exchanges between the two countries to further consolidate already excellent existing ties between the two countries. Both sides also discussed the possibility of resuming flights between Pakistan and Kyrgyzstan.
