Kyrgyz president cancels trip to UN General Assembly due to health problems
Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev will not attend the 71st session of the UN general Assembly in New York due to health problems, a statement on his official website said Monday.
Atambayev suddenly felt ill on the way to New York and was advised by his doctors to pass a preliminary medical exam.
"After the exam, the doctors decided that Atambayev, who complained about chest pains, should undergo a thorough examination as the symptoms of possible heart problems had been discovered," the statement said.
According to the statement, the Kyrgyz delegation at the UN General Assembly will be led by Foreign Minister Erlan Abdyldaev.
