Wen Jiabao arrived in Kyrgyzstan yesterday, making the first visit to the Central Asian country by a Chinese premier in a decade. He held a private talk with Kyrgyz Prime Minister Nikolai Tanayev after arriving in the capital, Bishkek. 'The meeting between the two premiers was very friendly,' said Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing , a member of Mr Wen's delegation which also includes Vice-Premier Wu Yi and six other ministers. 'I believe the whole trip will go smoothly and will be very pleasant and productive.' During the visit, Mr Wen is expected to sign an agreement on bilateral co-operation covering the next 10 years. He is also scheduled to attend the third summit of the Shanghai Co-operation Organisation in Bishkek, where the prime ministers of China, Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan will address issues relating to economic integration and regional security. 'All parties should start some concrete co-operation, including in the economic, trade and other sectors,' Foreign Ministry spokesman Kong Quan said last week.
