Iranian FM Discusses Latest Developments with Kyrgyzstan's Otunbayeva

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki in a phone conversation discussed the latest developments in Kyrgyzstan with the country's interim-government leader, Rosa Otunbayeva.

During the phone talk on Monday, Mottaki stressed Iran's interest in the restoration of stability and tranquility in Kyrgyzstan, and said, "In our opinion, such security and tranquility benefits the Kyrgyz people as well as the regional nations and states."

Kyrgyzstan's opposition announced that it had taken power and dissolved parliament in the poor but strategically important Central Asian state after deadly protests forced President Kurmanbek Bakiyev to flee the capital.

As Otunbayeva demanded the resignation of the president, whom she helped bring to power five years ago, she said Bakiyev was trying to rally supporters in his power base in southern Kyrgyzstan.

Noting that the current situation in Kyrgyzstan is an internal issue in which no foreign country should interfere, Mottaki reiterated that Iran supports the decisions adopted by the Kyrgyz people.

He also announced Tehran's readiness to send humanitarian aids to Kyrgyzstan, and expressed sympathy with those injured in the recent unrests in the country.

Otunbayeva, for her part, referred to the close relations between Tehran and Bishkek, and expressed the hope that the good ties between the two countries would continue.
