Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 20
By Ali Mustafayev – Trend:
Kyrgyz government decided to denounce the agreement with Kazakhstan concluded within the EEU (Eurasian Economic Union).
The bill on denunciation of the agreement on the development of economic cooperation within the Eurasian economic integration, signed with Kazakhstan in 2016, was submitted to the general department of the Kyrgyz parliament, 24.kg inform agency reported.
The agreement was intended to provide Kazakhstan’s assistance to the integration processes of Kyrgyzstan within the Eurasian Economic Union.
The agreement was about Kazakhstan's economic assistance to Kyrgyzstan in its integration into the EEU.
Previously, relations between the two neighboring Central Asian countries reached a point of escalation, since the President of Kyrgyzstan Almazbek Atambayev accused his Kazakh counterpart Nursultan Nazarbayev of supporting presidential candidate of the Kyrgyz opposition Omurbek Babanov, after the meeting between Babanov and Nazarbayev.
However, Kazakh side dismissed the accusations, arguing that Nazarbayev also met with Sooronbay Jeenbekov on the eve of the election and that there was no special sympathy for any of the candidates.
Newly elected President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbay Jeenbekov stated that he will build a policy based on mutual respect with Kazakhstan.
