The U.S. is hosting the inaugural Kyrgyz-U.S. annual bilateral consultations in Washington, State Department spokesman Mark Toner said on Thursday.

Toner told reporters that the delegations are led separately by Kyrgyz Foreign Minister Ruslan Kazakbaev and U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Robert Blake who is in charge of South and Central Asian affairs.

In addition to the consultations, Kyrgyz Foreign Minister Ruslan Kazakbaev had met with U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs William Burns to discuss "shared bilateral interests," he said.

The consultations will end Friday.
