Kyrgyz envoy for exploiting trade potential with Pakistan



ISLAMABAD, APR 30: Ambassador of Kyrgyzstan to Pakistan Ulanbek Totuiaev Sunday stressed the urgent need to fully exploit the existing trade and economic potentials between the two countries on priority to further bolster regional economic integration.

Chairing a ceremony dedicated to the 30th Anniversary of the Constitution of the Kyrgyz Republic, as well as the 95th Anniversary of the People’s writer of Kyrgyzstan Chyngyz Aitmatov, he said overall, the deep cultural heritage of our countries should also be spread among the people of Kyrgyzstan and Pakistan.

He said both countries are strongly interconnected and with the right approach can create a significantly efficient partnership and friendship for the benefit of our people. In this regard, he called upon all of us to actively work and cooperate to grow Kyrgyz-Pakistani relations on a qualitatively new level.

He said Kyrgyzstan is a country with a very deep and broad history and the  Kyrgyz nation itself is considered to be one of the most ancient in the world. The earliest records about the ethnonym “Kyrgyz” were found in Chinese transcriptions, which were written more than 2200 years ago he added.

At different times Kyrgyzstan was becoming a massive state, ruling in Central Asia and expanding its influence to the entire East Asian region he added.

He said both countries are bounded by strong historical links, as well as the same religion and close culture. As it is known, the founder of the Mongol Empire, Zahriddin Babur originated from the South of Kyrgyzstan. His house is today the historical site at the top of the mountain “Sulaiman-Too”.

Talking about Constitution, Ambassador  Ulanbek said that this document is the fundamental legal basis of the entire state, which defines the main rules and principles of all the spheres within the country.
