The agreement was signed by HE the Minister of Transport and Communications Jassim Saif Ahmed al-Sulaiti and Kyrgyzstan Minister of Transport and Roads Jamshitbek Kalilov.
Following the signing ceremony, the ministers discussed the bilateral relations between the two friendly countries in transport, mobility and aviation and the means of further enhancing them.
