The decision was taken during the Second Security Dialogue between India and the Kyrgyz Republic held on July  17-18.

The delegation from India was led by Vikram Misri, Deputy National Security Advisor of India, while Kyrgyzstan was led by Marat Mukanovich Imankulov, Secretary of the Security Council of the Kyrgyz Republic.

"Discussions at the Security Dialogue focused on bilateral, regional and international issues of mutual concern, the threats and challenges being faced by both the countries, including the situation in Afghanistan," read a statement issued by the Embassy of India in Bishkek.

Both sides welcomed the similarity of views on these matters and agreed upon further steps that are needed to be taken to increase bilateral security cooperation between the relevant organisations, including in the fields of counter-terrorism, combating radicalisation, narcotics control and defence cooperation.
