On July 16, 2021, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic A. Madmarov and State Secretary of the Ministry of Health and Social Development of the Kyrgyz Republic Zh.Tashiev met an airplane at the «Manas» international airport that delivered humanitarian aid from Baku with 40 thousand doses of vaccine "AstraZeneca" to Kyrgyzstan as part of countering the spread of COVID-19.
The Kyrgyz side expressed gratitude to the Republic of Azerbaijan for the humanitarian assistance and support provided in today's difficult epidemiological situation, which is a manifestation of brotherhood relations between the countries.
It should be noted that this is not the first humanitarian aid sent by Azerbaijani partners to the Kyrgyz Republic. In April 2020, 64 tons of medical and antiseptic agents were received.
Agreements on the provision of this humanitarian assistance were reached following the results of the official visit of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic R. Kazakbaev to the Republic of Azerbaijan on July 1-3, 2021.
