Rector of Osh state university Kudaiberdi Kozhobekov noted that the signing of the agreement is an important event in the cross-year between Kyrgyzstan and Russia: “in the cross-year, cooperation in the field of education is a priority among the planned activities to improve cooperation. On the basis of joint educational programs, students study simultaneously at two universities and have two Russian and Kyrgyz diplomas. I believe that this is the contribution of the two universities to strengthening friendship and fruitful cooperation between Kyrgyzstan and Russia. We agreed with the rector of USMU Olga Kovtun to exchange students, conduct practical trainings, improve the skills of teachers, implement joint projects, and cooperate in scientific and other areas.”
