Atambayev leaves behind stable and developing country Bishkek, Nov. 20, 2017. /Kabar/. Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev leaves behind a stable and developing country, political expert Ainura Arzymatova told Kabar Agency.

She said that today's final press conference of President Almazbek Atambayev is historic. "It is historic in the sense that it showed how the legally elected president should leave on time in accordance with the Constitution. “At today's press conference we were also able to get answers from the president of what he could do and what he unfortunately could not do. I think that what he put on his agenda to complete and what was expected of him from the public was accomplished. In any case, the head of state laid a great groundwork for the development of the country. This foundation passes to the next president, and we are very thankful that Atambayev left us a stable, developing country," she said.

The political expert emphasized that the president is leaving behind important strategic programs. "We could see that despite everything, Atambayev defended the honor and dignity of his country, including its independence," Arzymatova noted.

The political expert thinks that the answers of the head of state were sincere and open.

"The president himself said that sometimes he is emotional. But if to compare, many presidents are often framed and incommunicative. They are not interesting to listen to, because their answers are often veiled. As for Atambayev's press conference, it was very open and sincere. He is a patriot of his country. Moreover, President Atambayev stands higher than all the other presidents because he is always sincere and open. People like his this kind of personality too,"Arzymatova said.

Atambayev’s concern about Kyrgyz Kazah border and his critics on EEU Executive Committee’s work Bishkek, Nov. 20, 2017. /Kabar/. “I absolutely do not see the proper work of the head of the Executive Committee of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) in the person of Sarkisyan," Almazbek Atambayev said at his final press conference as president, speaking of the situation on the Kyrgyz-Kazakh border.

"I do not regret that Kyrgyzstan has joined the EEU, and Kyrgyzstan is not going to leave it. The only thing for the leaders of member countries to do is to think about this. Moreover, I absolutely do not see a proper work from the side of the head of the Executive Committee of the EEU in the person of Sarkisyan. In the European Union such things would not be allowed. It is impossible to imagine that the border would be closed at someone’s whim. We should not build a union on the principle of "Animal Farm," he added.

Atambayev said that the blockade of Kazakhstan does not hurt Kyrgyzstan.

"We get only stronger. Our GDP will decrease only by 0.3% and the growth of the economy will still be higher than in Kazakhstan. This can destroy the image of the EEU, " added the head of the state.

Kyrgyz President will sign law on Water Code after careful study Bishkek, Nov. 20, 2017. /Kabar/. "I will carefully study the document on amending the Water Code and only after that I will sign it," Almazbek Atambayev said today speaking at his last press conference as Kyrgyz President.

He said that, glaciers in Kyrgyzstan are thawed due to warming. "As for Lysyi and Davydov, I will look at all the papers. I raised even the old data, there is a catalog of glaciers of the USSR. According to them in Kyrgyzstan there are 6 thousand 771 glaciers. This law concerns only two of them. And both glaciers were raised 23 years ago. Why then no one raised this issue," he said.

Nevertheless, the president said that he would review all documents and noted that it is impossible to refuse from Canada’s Centerra today. Because a huge pit is formed on the site of development of Kumtor, which will become a lake. And Centerra should clean it afterward.

The Water Code is the main law that he is studying today.

The Kyrgyz Parliament supported the changes in the Water Code.

The government's bill on introducing amendments to the Water Code provides for the permission to transfer the Davydov glacier to another place at the same height in order to extract the gold under the glacier. As for the Lysyi glacier, only 10% of the ice mass will be removed.

Situation with Astana will be improved - Atambayev Bishkek, Nov. 20, 2017. /Kabar/. The situation with Astana will be improved, Almazbek Atambayev said at his final press conference in the post of the President of Kyrgyzstan.

He said that this is in the interests of Astana itself. "And they will not hide, first of all, Russia itself. This will be adjusted. I believe that I did everything right," he said.

The head of state reminded that in 2010, a representative of the State National Security Committee of Kazakhstan visited the Kyrgyz Parliament and distributed money, then he said that this would not happen again.

Atambayev said that according to Gellapa Fund, Kyrgyzstan is the most stable and promising country in Central Asia.

"It's much easier to rock some other country than ours. The situation will be improved. It will not be harmful for us," Atambayev added.

The president of Kyrgyzstan responded for the statement of former president Roza Otunbayeva that he had to go to Astana and personally talk with Nazarbayev.

"I remember how in 2010 there was a blockade. And I remember Otunbaeva's agreement. Then I just cut off the water for two days and the borders were immediately opened. I talked with Vladimir Putin and told him that if you need the Eurasian Economic Union, you cannot calmly watch it’s collapse," he added.

It should be reminded that Atambayev stated about Kazakhstan's interference in the internal affairs of Kyrgyzstan after the meeting of Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev with presidential candidate Omurbek Babanov before the presidential elections in Kyrgyzstan.

After that, since October 10, 2017, Kazakhstan tightened border control regime on the Kyrgyz-Kazakh and Kazakh-Russian border for Kyrgyz citizens and cargoes from Kyrgyzstan. On October 18, during the meeting in Astana of the prime ministers of Kyrgyzstan - Sapar Isakov and Kazakhstan-Bakytzhan Sagintayev, the sides agreed to ensure the priority order of crossing the state border between the two countries for individuals with personal luggage, vehicles carrying out regular passenger transportation, motor transport; empty cargo vehicles.

For today, there are problems with trucks with goods and products.

At the EEU intergovernmental council in Yerevan on October 25, 2017, Kazakhstan did not sign the road map, which would settle the situation.

The Kyrgyz President’s press service reported that Putin warmly welcomed Atambayev and called it symbolic that the first and final visit of the Kyrgyz leader took place in Russia.

“I am pleased to note that during your presidency the quality of Russia−Kyrgyzstan relations has significantly changed. The Kyrgyz Republic became a member of our economic union. There has been progress in our cooperation in the economy, security, including strengthening of the external borders, and culture,” he said.

“I am particularly glad that you accepted the invitation and arrived for this cultural forum. You will see that it is a major and very interesting international event that is taking place for the sixth time in Russia, in its cultural capital, St Petersburg, which is for a reason,” Putin said.

Putin also assured Atambayev in further deepening of humanitarian cooperation and the support of initiatives aimed at further studying of Altai civilization.

“I know you have many ideas about reinforcing and building up the results that our peoples have achieved together over the previous decades and, perhaps, even over centuries. Your initiative in this respect is inspiring and we have supported and will support it further. I believe it is very important to emphasise the long history of our relations. We have already spoken about this. The first major event already took place in Kyrgyzstan. We are ready to offer Russian venues for future events as well, so I will be glad to discuss the entire scope of our relations,” he said.

The Kyrgyz President, in turn, expressed satisfaction with the level of development of relations between the two countries, connected with a centuries-old history.

As you know, this year we hosted the Altai Forum, bringing together academics from about 30 countries. Next year, there will be another event, the International Altai Congress. It was held in many places, except Altai. But this time we persuaded them to hold it in our country.

This forum is dominated by Western researchers. Of course, we need to be mindful of our history, because people who forget the path they took in the past will not be able to find their way into the future. I would very much like Kyrgyzstan and Russia to maintain their relations in their current state forever, for centuries, since as you know there were attempts to destroy, dismantle these ties and take them along a different path. The last six years were very challenging for me in this regard. Of course, I would very much like these brotherly relations that we have restored to become only stronger,” Atambayev said.

The two leaders discussed the viral issues of Kyrgyz-Russian cooperation and prospects of further interaction, as well as implementation of joint projects.
