Russia will be implementing programs for upgrading and rearming the armed forces of Kyrgyzstan as the international coalition force will leave neighboring Afghanistan, Russian Defense Minister, General of the Army Sergey Shoigu said at a meeting with the chief of Kyrgyzstan’s General Staff, Major-General Asanbek Alymkozhoyev on Tuesday.

“Our cooperation is developing rather dynamically, the way it should develop between neighbors, friends and fraternal peoples,” he said. “The current situation requires still faster interaction. There are several reasons for this, number one being Afghanistan and the withdrawal of the international coalition force.”
