USAID, Kyrgyzstan discuss co-operation pact


BISHKEK -- US Agency for International Development (USAID) officials visited Bishkek in an effort to reach a US-Kyrgyz Bilateral Co-operation Agreement (BCA), the US embassy in Bishkek said in a statement Wednesday (April 24).

USAID's James Kelleher and Gary Linden, accompanied by US Embassy Political/Economic Counsellor Thomas Selinger, conferred with a Kyrgyz government delegation on major goals of the agreement Monday-Tuesday (April 22-23).

Presidents Donald Trump and Sooronbay Jeenbekov have stated their desire to conclude a mutually acceptable BCA.

US assistance to Kyrgyzstan since the Central Asian country gained independence in 1991 has benefited its economic development, military and counter-terrorism efforts.
