US says got 'no formal notification' to close Kyrgyzstan military base

The United States is "still in talks" with the Central Asian state of Kyrgyzstan on the future of its military air base and has received no formal notification to shut it down, the U.S. embassy in Bishkek said on Wednesday.

"We have been in discussion with Kyrgyz authorities on the future of Manas Air Base. These discussions will continue," it said in a statement.

"At this point we have not received formal notification of a decision by Kyrgyzstan to close the base."
