"As a member of TURKPA, there is a problem that Kyrgyzstan has experienced recently. According to the latest information we have received, a ceasefire has been declared between Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, I hope this will be permanent. Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are both our friendly and brotherly countries. We, as Turkey, are ready to do everything we have to do in this matter.  In terms of providing a permanent solution, mediation and our brothers and sisters who suffered from the events.. I have already spoken with our Red Crescent Association President about humanitarian aid and support to the region.  They have contacts and studies in the region.   It is very sad that two Muslim countries, two friendly and brotherly countries, have entered into a conflict that reaches this point in this Ramadan.

Similar things have happened in this region before  for the same reasons. We want the problems in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan to be resolved permanently. We will do our best in this regard. There were people who died in the conflicts in the region. I wish God's mercy on our brothers who passed away. "

TURKPA Secretary General Mamayusupov also stated that they continued their activities as TURKPA in this process.

Stating that Turkey has a very important role in ensuring the cooperation of TURKPA member countries, Mamayusupov said, "Turkey has been more influential in these roles lately. We have witnessed this in Azerbaijan.  The support of Turkey has been very important in terms of taking back Azerbaijan's lands''

At the same time, Mamayusupov stated that there were some problems and attacks in Kyrgyzstan, one of the member countries of TURKPA, and said, "We have stated our support as Turkish cooperation institutions in this process. As you said, this conflict will end in a short time and a peace process will be presented. The contribution of Turkey is very important for the Kyrgyz people. Turkey's support has always been felt by the Kyrgyz people. It continues to be felt. We believe it will continue from now on. "
