Kyrgyzia has expressed support for the large-scale anti-terror actions of the USA and its allies in Afghanistan, Kyrgyz foreign minister Muratbek Imanaliyev said Monday at a press conference in Bishkek. In his words, the entire international community should evidently make urgent steps towards eradicating terrorism and its feeding source. Terrorists must shoulder the responsibility for their cruel deeds, stressed the minister. At the same time, Imanaliyev added, Kyrgyzia does not regard the anti-terror campaign as a war on Islam and Afghan people. He also said that Bishkek came out for creating favourable conditions to form a coalition government, heeding the interests of all the religious, ethnic and political groups of Afghanistan.
The choice of the city of Helsinki is not incidental as the capital of Finland had hosted US-Soviet negotiations on the limitation of nuclear stockpiles in 1969
