The President of Kyrgyzstan calls on Washington not to interfere in his country's affairs

Kyrgyz President Sadr Japarov called on the United States and other countries not to interfere in his country's internal affairs, and to evaluate the ongoing operations there objectively.
Japarov said, in a letter in which he responded to US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken: “I also want to emphasize that we support cooperation on an equal footing and are ready to work with all countries and international partners, including the United States. My only request is not to interfere in the internal affairs of our country.”

Earlier, Blinken sent a letter to the President of Kyrgyzstan, in which he expressed his concern about the consideration by the authorities of this country of the law on non-governmental organizations. Blinken believes that this law, if adopted, will negatively affect the state of civil society in the republic.

It is known that the Kyrgyz Parliament is currently considering the aforementioned draft law.

 Japarov expressed his regret that the American side provided biased and subjective information about the real situation of human rights and freedoms in Kyrgyzstan.

According to him, only a small but “very vocal” group of NGOs funded by foreign countries claim to be persecuted and suffering hardship, which in turn prompts the foreign institutions that sponsor and fund them to behave in the same way.

Japarov noted that these non-governmental organizations often spread "false and unreliable information among people, which leads to lawsuits being filed by those affected or defamed."

“In this regard, I propose to conduct an audit of the use of financial resources by non-governmental and non-profit organizations funded by US government organizations, at least during the past ten years,” he said.

In addition, President Japarov invited Blinken to visit Bishkek “to ensure first-hand that human rights and freedoms in Kyrgyzstan are reliably protected under the Constitution and laws of the Kyrgyz Republic.”

Earlier, Kyrgyz President Sadr Japarov revealed that all the revolutions that the country witnessed in recent years were primarily motivated by wrong actions on the part of the authorities, and pointed to funding that some of them were receiving from abroad.

Russia and Azerbaijan agree on the dates for negotiations on the presence of peacekeeping forces in Karabakh

The Russian Ambassador to Azerbaijan, Mikhail Evdokimov, announced that Russia and Azerbaijan have agreed on the date of the next round of negotiations on the presence of Russian peacekeeping forces in the Karabakh region.
Evdokimov told the Izvestia newspaper: “The dates for the next round of negotiations between Moscow and Baku on peacekeeping forces have now been agreed with the Azerbaijani Ministry of Foreign Affairs.”

He pointed out that the date for the presence of Russian peacekeepers in the Karabakh region ends in 2025.

He added that after Baku regained control over the entire territory of the region, the role of the peacekeeping forces changed. Russian peacekeepers, along with Azerbaijani forces, patrol the area to protect buildings and cultural sites.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Galuzin stated earlier that after the Armenian leadership recognized the dependency of the Karabakh region on Azerbaijan, Moscow is discussing all issues related to the presence of peacekeeping forces there with Baku.

Galuzin also warned in a separate statement of Washington's intentions  to open a "second front" against Russia from the South Caucasus, noting that the United States has not hidden these intentions for a long time.

Russian Ambassador to Armenia: We will not allow external powers to exploit the Caucasus for opportunistic geopolitical purposes against us
Pashinyan added in an interview with the Telegraph newspaper : “Currently there is no such issue on our agenda, that is, we have not discussed and are not discussing the issue of joining NATO.”

He continued: "We have a partnership with NATO and there is nothing new in this regard," explaining, "Previously we had an individual partnership program, but now this program is being reformulated in a new form of cooperation, but it does not stipulate our membership in the alliance."

He pointed out that Armenia is now a member of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, pointing out that his country is examining the extent to which the organization's strategy meets Armenia's interests in the long term.
