President of Kyrgyzstan Sadyr Japarov called on the United States and other countries not to interfere in the internal affairs of the republic and to objectively assess the processes taking place in it, Day.Az reports with reference to TASS.
“I also want to emphasize that we stand for equal cooperation and are ready to work together with all countries and international partners, including the United States. My only request is not to interfere in the internal affairs of our country,” he said in a response letter to the Secretary of State USA to Antony Blinken, which was published by the press secretary of the head of the Kyrgyz state Askat Alagozov.
Earlier, Blinken sent a message to the head of Kyrgyzstan, where he expressed concern about the country’s consideration of the law on non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the adoption of which, according to the Secretary of State, would negatively affect the state of civil society in the republic. This bill is currently being discussed in the national parliament.
Japarov also expressed regret that the US representative has biased information about the real situation with human rights and freedoms in Kyrgyzstan. According to him, only a small but “very vocal group” of NGOs funded by foreign states and their individual representatives “speculate on their “difficulties” and “persecution,” which in turn forces foreign sponsoring structures to follow their lead , engage in wastefulness, spending money from US and EU taxpayers.” In addition, these same non-governmental structures often disseminate “false, unreliable information among the people, which leads to litigation brought by victims or those slandered.” “In this regard, I propose to conduct an audit of the use of financial resources by non-governmental and non-profit organizations funded by US government organizations, at least for the last 10 years,” Japarov emphasized.
