Sunday, June 11, 2017 - 13:49

The Government of Kyrgyzstan has proposed to create joint ventures for the manufacture of military products in the territory of the republic within the framework of the development of cooperation between the defense industrial complexes of the CSTO countries. Deputy Prime Minister Zhenish Razakov announced the news on June 8, during the Bishkek-based meeting of the interstate commission of the states of the Organization for Military-Economic Cooperation.


“Kyrgyzstan expresses its interest in developing cooperation between organizations and enterprises of the military-industrial complex. We also propose to create a number of joint ventures in the territory of the country for the manufacture of military products. Such a measure will allow to restore the work of a part of the republic's enterprises, while simultaneously increasing the volume of manufactured industrial products and their exports, as well as bringing up the level of employment of the population,” he said.


According to Razakov, the CSTO activities contribute to increasing the defense capacity of the participants of this organization, and help maintain stability in the region. The Deputy Prime Minister also noted that Kyrgyzstan was interested in transforming the CSTO into a regional multi-functional structure able to provide comprehensive security for all its member states.


“I emphasize the need to further develop cooperation within the organization, in both the military-political and military-technical spheres. Such cooperation within the CSTO is of paramount importance for the Kyrgyz side, since the activities of this structure are a significant component of military-political and economic relations of the member states of the organization,” he stressed.


Worth recalling, Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are the current CSTO member states.
