United States Calls for Dialogue in Kyrgyzstan

The United States Government has been following events in Kyrgyzstan closely since the second round of parliamentary elections last week. We are concerned by incidents of violence in Jalalabad and other parts of the country. We call on all parties in Kyrgyzstan to engage in dialogue and resolve differences peacefully and according to the rule of law.

The United States strongly endorses the March 20th Organization for Security and Co-Operation in Europe (OSCE) statement calling for nonviolence and immediate dialogue. U.S. officials have been in contact with both the government and opposition to reinforce this message.
