Deposed Kyrgyz president holds talks with Putin
Moscow: Deposed Kyrgyzstan President
Kurmanbek Bakiyev held a telephone conversation with Russian
Prime Minister Vladimir Putin for the first time since
protests ousted him from power last week.
The two leaders had a telephone conversation last
night, Prime Minister`s office said Thursday.
No further details of the talks were available.
The conversation comes a day after Russian President
Dmitry Medvedev blamed Bakiyev`s government for failing to
prevent the unrest and said the risk of a civil war in the
Central Asian country is high.
Putin yesterday approved a hefty aid package for the
interim government Kyrgyzstan and had a meeting with Interim
Kyrgyz vice Premier Almazbek Atambayev.
Back channels are being used for negotiations between
the interim government of ex-Foreign Minister Roza Otunbayeva
and Bakiyev, who has fled to south of Kyrgyzstan after bloody
rioting of April 7 in capital Bishkek, and is seeking security
guaranties for his resignation.
