August 26, 2022 – Bishkek. To congratulate all Kyrgyzstanis on 31 years of independence, the Embassy of the United States of America in the Kyrgyz Republic has projected a special image on its diplomatic mission. From the evening of August 25 to September 2, the public will see the Kyrgyz Republic’s national flag and a congratulatory message illuminating the Embassy’s wall on Masaliev Street also known as Yuzhnaya Magistral.
Kyrgyz and American employees of the U.S. Embassy and their families joined Chargé d’Affaires Sonata Coulter in an informal event to light the U.S. Embassy wall. Together, they celebrated the shared values between the Kyrgyz and American people, including among others, a love for freedom, justice, and equality.
“We are excited to light up our Embassy wall in honor of the Kyrgyz Republic’s Independence Day. It is a visible symbol of the friendship between our peoples, and of the support the United States has for the Kyrgyz Republic’s independence and sovereignty,” said Chargé Coulter.
The United States is proud to be one of the first countries in the world to recognize the independence of the Kyrgyz Republic in 1991, and to be the very first country to establish a permanent diplomatic mission in Bishkek.
