Kyrgyzstan has reaffirmed plans to close the US air base that supports military operations in nearby Afghanistan.

The United States pays 46 million euros annually for the Manas air transport base.

All US troops moving in and out of nearby Afghanistan travel through Manas. Large numbers are set to pass through as part of the withdrawal of most international troops next year.
