U.S. Assistance to Kyrgyzstan (Taken Question)

Question:   How much U.S. foreign aid does Kyrgyzstan receive and are there any plans to augment that funding given the security situation in the country?

Answer:   Total U.S. assistance to Kyrgyzstan was $50.8 million in Fiscal Year 2004. While figures for total U.S. assistance for Fiscal Year 2005 are not yet available, the State Department budget contains $31 million in aid to Kyrgyzstan under the Freedom Support Act. We will continue to support economic and democratic reform in Kyrgyzstan, including elections, humanitarian assistance, law enforcement, and security, and will carefully watch for emerging needs.
