Foreign Ministry of Kyrgyzstan МИД КР

The Kyrgyz Ministry of Foreign Affairs set up the @pressslujba account in August 2012 and posts sporadically, mainly announcements and statements from the Foreign Ministry’s website in Russian. The account rarely @replies or @mentions other users but does follow a number of other foreign ministries and some ministers for foreign affairs.
