The parties discussed the steps to be taken to respond to the crisis due to the developments that are taking place in the region, the press office of the Government of Kyrgyzstan reports.

“There is a risk that the crisis will continue. Don’t panic. Currently, the Cabinet of Ministers is developing a package of anti-crisis measures, which should stem from term,” Kozhoshev emphasised.
