Russian President Visits Kyrgyzstan

The presidents are due to sign an intergovernmental agreement on developing cooperation in the electric-power supply industry, as well as a memorandum of understanding between Kyrgyzstan and Russia's energy giant Gazprom.

During his two-day official visit to Kyrgyzstan, Medvedev will also take part in meetings of the heads of state of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and of the Intergovernmental Council of Eurasec. Both meetings are set for October 10.

As RIA Novosti reports, both the CIS and Eurasec leaders are expected to discuss, among other issues, the current financial crisis at their respective meetings.

The CIS leaders will also consider a "draft economic development strategy until 2020, drawn up by a working group of deputy economic ministers from the member states," Russian presidential aide Sergei Prikhodko said on Wednesday.

The agenda for the Eurasec summit will also include setting up a Customs Union between Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.
