EU/Kyrgyzstan — Council conclusions on Kyrgyzstan

3009th FOREIGN AFFAIRS Coun­cil meet­ing, Lux­em­bourg, 26 April 2010
The Coun­cil adopt­ed the fol­low­ing con­clu­sions:

1. “The Coun­cil has close­ly fol­lowed the recent events in Kyr­gyzs­tan. The Coun­cil regrets the loss of life and remains con­cerned by the frag­ile sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try. The Coun­cil appre­ci­ates the close and suc­cess­ful coor­di­na­tion between the EU, OSCE, and the UN in Kyr­gyzs­tan in the imme­di­ate after­math of the unrest.

2. The Coun­cil under­lines the impor­tance of an ear­ly return to pub­lic order in Kyr­gyzs­tan under a demo­c­ra­t­ic gov­ern­ment that ful­ly respects the rule of law and human rights. The Coun­cil calls on the pro­vi­sion­al gov­ern­ment to abide by all Kyrgyzstan’s inter­na­tion­al oblig­a­tions and com­mit­ments in that regard.

3. The Coun­cil wel­comes the pro­vi­sion­al government’s announce­ment to work on con­sti­tu­tion­al reform and rapid­ly lay the prop­er ground­work for demo­c­ra­t­ic elec­tions. The Coun­cil calls on the pro­vi­sion­al gov­ern­ment to take into account the rel­e­vant expert opin­ions of ODIHR and the Venice Com­mis­sion in organ­is­ing the con­sti­tu­tion­al ref­er­en­dum and the par­lia­men­tary elec­tions announced for 27 June and 10 Octo­ber 2010 respec­tive­ly.

4. The Coun­cil looks for­ward to con­crete action by the pro­vi­sion­al gov­ern­ment in the areas men­tioned above and stands ready to sup­port imple­men­ta­tion of these objec­tives with assis­tance mea­sures, includ­ing in the frame­work of the EU Strat­e­gy for Cen­tral Asia.

5. The EU will con­tin­ue to fol­low the sit­u­a­tion in Kyr­gyzs­tan close­ly and will coor­di­nate its actions with rel­e­vant inter­na­tion­al organ­i­sa­tions and oth­er inter­na­tion­al actors.”
