Head of Russian Security Council visits Kirghizia

Secretary of Russia's Security Council Vladimir Rushailo, who is currently on a working visit in Kirghizia, has had talks with Askar Akayev discussing regional security and struggle against international terrorism, religious extremism, organized crime, and illicit drug trafficking.

"We intend to struggle in strict compliance with international law," stressed Rushailo. With that in view the sides decided to develop a programme of actions aimed at combating these threats with due account for the current situation.

Taking part in the development of the programme will be all members of the Commonwealth of Independent States, noted Rushailo. Evaluating the situation in Central Asia, the Russian security council secretary noted that the "anti-terrorist operation in Afghanistan is far from complete." "The military potential of the Taliban is still great and the threat emanating from there still exists. "We must do our utmost to ensure security in the Central Asian region," said Rushailo.

Russia is attentively following the development of the internal socio-political situation in Kirghizia and intends to support Akayev's policy towards its stabilization," said Rushailo. Russia, he went on, possesses information on forces that are interested in destabilizing the situation in Kirghizia and intends to support the efforts of Kirghizia's president Askar Akayev in doing away with them, said Vladimir Rushailo. He noted at the same time that "the time has not yet come to make these forces known to all." According to information coming from Southern Kirghizia, the inhabitants of that region have for the fourth month now been protesting against the arrest of one of their deputies charged with abuse of authority. During the clashes with the law-enforcement bodies several people have been killed and dozens wounded.

During his stay in Bishkek Vladimir Rushailo also met with Kirghizia's Security Council Secretary Misir Ashirkulov and Prime Minister Nikolai Tanayev.
