Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday stressed the importance of the fight against the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) by Turkey and Kyrgyzstan, Eurasia Diary reports citing Anadolu Agency. 

"Recent events have once again revealed the bloody, dark, and ugly face of FETO. I hope we will overcome this threat together by standing shoulder to shoulder," Erdogan said at a joint news conference with his counterpart from Kyrgyzstan Sadyr Japarov.

During the meeting, the two discussed regional cooperation and the fight against terror groups, including FETO, Erdogan said.

“We agree that FETO poses a national security threat to both countries,” he added.

He vowed to boost bilateral trade between Ankara and Bishkek “to reach a target of $1 billion trade volume.”

Erdogan also outlined a plan to increase flights between the two nations.

Bilateral relations

For his part, Japarov noted that Turkey is the first country that recognized the independence of Kyrgyzstan and developed friendly ties.

He also expressed gratitude to Turkey "for the invaluable moral, technical and social assistance it has given for the development of Kyrgyzstan’s economy."

He said they discussed the future of bilateral relations and also exchanged views on international issues.

"We have been able to create cooperation mechanisms in many areas," he added.

"We discussed very important issues related to the arrival of Turkish investors in Kyrgyzstan,” he said, underlining that "all rights of Turkish investors" currently working in his country "will be protected."

"We also discussed the opening of the Kyrgyz-Turkish Friendship Hospital in a very short period of time."
