Russia and Uzbekistan to bring stability to Kyrgyzstan

Russia and Uzbekistan have agreed to coordinate their efforts in bringing stability to Kyrgyzstan.

The announcement came after a meeting between the Uzbek president and the recently appointed Russian Special Envoy to Kyrgyzstan Vladimir Rushailo on Tuesday.

Rushailo confirmed that Moscow will continue sending humanitarian aid to the turbulent country, which descended into turmoil in April after violent clashes led to the ousting of former Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev.

At present, Kyrgyzstan’s interim government is preparing for a referendum on a new constitution later in June.
