Iran President Congratulates Kyrgyz Counterpart on Election Victory

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani congratulated Sooronbay Jeenbekov on winning the presidential election in Kyrgyzstan, expressing the hope for the expansion of relations with the Central Asian country.

In a message of congratulations to the Kyrgyz president-elect on Tuesday, President Rouhani expressed confidence that Tehran-Bishkek ties would continue to grow in Jeenbekov’s tenure.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran sees no limits to the expansion of relations with the Republic of Kyrgyzstan in all fields,” the Iranian president added, expressing the hope that implementation of the bilateral agreements would enhance “friendly and brotherly ties” between the two nations.

Former Prime Minister Sooronbay Jeenbekov won presidential election in Kyrgyzstan on October 15. Backed by outgoing President Almazbek Atambayev’s Social Democratic party, Jeenbekov received 54.3 percent of the about 1.7 million votes, making a run-off unnecessary.
