OSCE: Akayev Must Go

by Laurence on 3/31/2005

AP reports the OSCE has called on Akayev to quit now:

Europe’s leading security organization called Thursday on ousted President Askar Akayev to resign and urged Kyrgyzstan’s new leadership to avoid dangerous infighting before a new election.

The current chief of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe said Akayev should cooperate with efforts to secure his resignation and the “cooperation should be effective and as short as possible” in order to ease persistent uncertainty in the Central Asian nation.

In the third visit by a high-level OSCE official to Kyrgyzstan since the upheaval that led Akayev to flee to Russia, chairman Dimitrij Rupel said the 55-nation organization backs the new parliament’s effort to hold talks on the president’s resignation.
