Turkey, Kyrgyzstan to Sign Security Agreement soon

Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu on Sunday said his country and Kyrgyzstan would sign a security cooperation agreement as soon as possible. Suleyman Soylu met his Kyrgyz counterpart Ulan Niyazbekov in Istanbul.

Expressing his pleasure to host Niyazbekov, Soylu said Turkey and Kyrgyzstan enjoy friendly relations with the fact Ankara was the first to recognize Kyrgyzstan's independence.

"I would like to reiterate that Turkey has made significant progress in many areas, from immigration to the fight against cybercrime, drugs and terrorism," Soylu said.

"Hopefully, we will sign a security cooperation agreement as soon as possible," he added.
