TAJIK FOREIGN MINISTRY FOR NEGOTIATIONS IN KYRGYZSTAN
DUSHANBE, March 23 (RIA Novosti) - The Tajik Foreign Ministry has issued a statement in connection with Kyrgyz developments, voicing hope to the effect that reason will prevail over emotions in Kyrgyzstan, and that all Kyrgyz political forces will display will-power and courage, so as to choose an optimal trouble-shooting scenario at the negotiating table.
Tajikistan is watching developments in south Kyrgyzstan that are accompanied by all-out riots and manifestations of violence and chaos with deep alarm and concern, the statement reads in part.
The Tajik Foreign Ministry notes that no political goals (regardless of their good intentions) can justify unlawful violent actions and radical manifestations of political ambitions. This is fraught with highly dangerous consequences for Kyrgyz and regional peace and stability, the statement goes on to say.
According to the document, Tajikistan, which had recently experienced the horrors of a civil war, has always advocated the peaceful solution of all problems at the negotiating table and in line with Kyrgyz laws and Constitution. Tajikistan still adheres to this position, the document stresses.
Tajikistan is ready to provide all necessary moral and political assistance to this process, the republican Foreign Ministry stresses.
