Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Tuesday that his country aspired to advance the closest possible relations with the future Kyrgyz government.

"As soon as a new Kyrgyz government is formed, we will be ready to promote the closest possible relations with it," said Lavrov at a press conference.

The top Russian diplomat noted that some "hard work" looms ahead after the parliamentary elections in Kyrgyzstan concluded on Sunday, since no party enjoyed a majority that would enable it to form the government alone.

"We have already expressed our concerns that such an abrupt switch to a parliamentary form of the government would bring about some difficulties for sustained development of Kyrgyz state," Lavrov said.

"We'll only be happy if there won't be any aggravations," he added.

Five parties have passed the 5-percent threshold at the Kyrgyz parliamentary election, said the country's Central Election Commission on Monday.
