‘Big sym­bolic visit of our PM to Kyr­gyzs­tan’

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE - —Zee Me­dia News­room

The re­la­tion­ship be­tween In­dian and Kyr­gyz Repub­lic is fan­tas­tic. PM Modi was here in 2015, and this is a re­peat visit in 4 years. It was a his­toric mo­ment that PM un­der­took a com­bined visit of all 5 cen­tral Asian coun­tries and there­after Kyr­gyz pres­i­dent un­der­took a visit to In­dia in 2016. Pres­i­dent of Kyr­gyz Repub­lic was a spe­cial in­vi­tee at Prime Min­is­ter’s swear­ing-in cer­e­mony, just a week ago.

This is a hugely sym­bolic and highly in­ter­est­ing oc­ca­sion for us for the bi­lat­eral re­la­tion­ship that we have been able to main­tain a mo­men­tum of very level vis­its and ex­changes and def­i­nitely first sig­nif­i­cant visit out­side the neigh­bour­hood and first mul­ti­lat­eral visit to this ge­og­ra­phy and this coun­try and our Kyr­gyz part­ners are ex­pect­ing good re­sults.

We live in a glob­alised world. The dis­tances are much shorter and mul­ti­lat­er­al­ism of this or­der is the new or­der of the world re­la­tion­ship. So yes, there are very im­por­tant mul­ti­lat­eral plat­forms in which our lead­ers visit, travel and get to en­gage with each other. SCO is one of them.
