BISHKEK, June 27 (Xinhua) -- Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev discussed bilateral military ties and regional affairs with Chinese Defense Minister Chang Wanquan Thursday, vowing to strengthen cooperation.

Kyrgyzstan and China must strengthen cooperation and jointly tackle challenges, Atambayes said, stressing the importance of military cooperation in the bilateral relationship and hoping to further deepen military exchanges.

Chang, also a state councilor, said China-Kyrgyz relations had developed well since the establishment of diplomatic relations, and the political trust had constantly deepened between the two sides.

China would, as always, attach great importance to the bilateral relations and work together to create a new future for ties between the two militaries under the leadership of president Atambayev and Chinese President Xi Jinping, he said.
