Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is in Kyrgyzstan on Thursday to take part in a Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) meeting.
Axar.az reports citing Anadolu Agency.
According to an official statement by the Russian government, the participants of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council meeting will focus on the establishment of a common EAEU financial system and examining the perspectives of economic and industrial cooperation.
The union body's meeting will be held in Cholpon-Ata, a Kyrgyz resort town, on Friday.
The Eurasian Economic Union, aimed at boosting economic relations, was founded in 2014 between Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Russia; Armenia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan joined later.
Medvedev’s visit to Kyrgyzstan comes in the wake of a failed attempt to arrest the former Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev who is accused of corruption.
On Wednesday, a police officer was killed, 45 people wounded during the raid on Atambayev’s residence, which ended up with the special forces withdrawal early Thursday after failing to detain Atambayev.
