Modi also electronically unveiled a plaque commemorating the inauguration of the extreme high altitude test laboratory, Phase 2 of the KIMBMRC project, situated in the Syok Pass at an altitude of 4,000 meters. The laboratory will be constructed later in 2015.

The Prime Minister interacted with Indian and Kyrgyz soldiers at the Too Ashu laboratory which is part of the ongoing Phase 1 of the project. He said, "The research done at the Center will greatly benefit the health of soldiers who secure the borders at high altitude."

Modi also inaugurated the first telemedicine link between India and Central Asia. Reportedly, he witnessed a tele-consultation for a cardiac patient between doctors in Osh city in southern Kyrgyzstan, with doctors in Bishkek and with the Apollo hospital and AIIMS in Delhi.
