AKAEV: STATE OF EMERGENCY WILL NOT BE IMPOSED
BISHKEK, March 22 (RIA Novosti) - President of Kyrgyzstan Askar Akaev has confirmed that the state of emergency will not be declared in the republic.
"It is necessary to expose misinformation, numerous and malicious myths and insinuations about the situation in our republic, allegedly demanding the declaration of the state of emergency. In this connection, I'd like to declare firmly that I as the president will not go for such measures", Akaev said on Tuesday addressing the new parliament of Kyrgyzstan.
Definite forces in the republic "conscientiously instigate power to the tough use of force", said the president of Kyrgyzstan.
A coup attempt by the opposition is under way in Kyrgyzstan, Akaev said.
Analyzing the gist of the on-going processes, the president noted that they are inseparably linked to "color revolutions", which happened in other countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States.
"Such revolutions, which are essentially coups, are found outside the legal space. The same goes for the actions of our 'amateur' revolutionaries. Their actions present a direct threat to our people, society and the state".
