ASTANA (BNO NEWS) — The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) on Thursday said that the departure of Kyrgyzstan President Kurmanbek Bakiyev from his country is the result of joint efforts with President Obama and Russian President Medvedev.
“Today, on April 15, as a result of joint efforts of Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev, U.S. President Barack Obama and Russia’s President Dmitriy Medvedev, as well as active mediation by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, along with the United Nations and the European Union, an agreement was reached with the Interim Government of Kyrgyzstan and President Kurmanbek Bakiyev on his departure from the country,” said OSCE Chairperson-in-Office Kanat Saudabayev.
Saudabayev said Bakiyev has already left Kyrgyzstan, as a Russian news agency reported earlier. “This development is an important step towards the stabilization of the situation, a return to a framework providing for the rule of law, and the prevention of a civil war in Kyrgyzstan,” Saudabayev said.
Saudabayev further called on all political forces in Kyrgyzstan to ensure stability, public order and the rule of law. He also urged them to address the ‘most pressing social and economic problems’ as soon as possible.
“The OSCE stands ready to continue to provide further assistance to Kyrgyzstan to move beyond the current political crisis towards peaceful democratic development,” Saudabayev added.
