Germany offer rapprochement with EU to Kyrgyz Republic
Merkel visits Central Asia states
German Chancellor Angela Merkel offered the support in rapprochement with EU and democracy development to Bishkek during her official visit to Kyrgyz Republic, Deutche Welle reports.
She stated she stands for strengthening ties of EU with the Eurasian Economic Union member states.
Republic President Almazbek Atambayev stressed Merkel's visit is "a support for the democratic path that we chose".
The German Chancellor added that Berlin supports Bishkek financially, when the country suffers from severe economic problems. The Kyrgyz Republic "chose the democratic path, but it is hard to implement it in this region", Merkel said.
Bishkek is only the first stop in Merkel's trip to Central Asia. The Chancellor plans to visit Mongolia and Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM), which will take place in Ulaanbaatar on July 15-16.
