Turkish FM set to meet with Kyrgyz leaders

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu will travel to Kyrgyzstan on July 2.

Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that Davutoglu would attend oath-taking ceremony of Roza Otunbayeva as the interim president of Kyrgyzstan on July 3.

During his two-day stay in Kyrgyzstan, Davutoglu is set to meet with Kyrgyz authorities including Almazbek Atambayev, first deputy head of the Kyrgyz interim government, and Foreign Minister Ruslan Kazakbayev.

Davutoglu is expected to meet with Turkish citizens living in Kyrgyzstan.

"Turkey welcomed completion of referendum successfully after the tragic events in southern Kyrgyzstan especially in the cities of Osh and Jalalabad. We hope that the recent positive atmosphere will continue till the parliamentary elections in the country in October. Turkey will continue extending support to Kyrgyzstan in this process under a special action plan. This action plan includes financial aid as well as regional and international cooperation with Kyrgyzstan. To this end, Turkey will send 20 million USD to be used in rebuilding of the cities of Osh and Jalalabad," the Ministry added.

People of Kyrgyzstan approved the new constitution in a referendum on June 27 after an interim government led by former foreign minister, Roza Otunbayeva, came to power in April 2010 in Kyrgyztan following anti-government protests toppled the president, whom the opposition accused of usurping power.
