TURKEY BACKS STABILITY IN CENTRAL ASIA





The events in Kyrgyzstan, which have left many dead, have shown how weak the columns which support the present conjecture in the world truly are.
In the regrettable events which have caused the death of 800 people according to independent sources and of 312 according to official statements and have caused 1000 injuries, at least 75,000 people have been rendered refugees according to UNICEF. The high tensions could only be lowered through the sensible attitude of Uzbekistan. Despite losing many of its own people and facing a sudden wave of immigration dues to the latest events in Kyrgyzstan, the Uzbek administration made contributions to the efforts being made towards halting the spreading of violence and lowering tensions.In this critical process Uzbekistan opened its doors to refugees fleeing Kyrgyzstan and played a role in humanitarian aid reaching those in need. Furthermore, that the Uzbek leader Islam Kerimov acted with discretion and calmed possible reactions from the Uzbek people to the events has played a key role in maintaining peace in the region.Turkey is aware of the responsibility undertaken and successful crisis management displayed by Uzbekistan. Indeed, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has given this message clearly in a statement on the five day long events between Kyrgyz and Uzbek populations in the southern Kyrgyz states of Osh and Jalalabad. In this statement minister Davutoglu underlined that he “appreciated the sensible approach by Islam Kerimov, President of friend Uzbekistan, for the lowering of tensions in southern Kyrgyzstan. The minister also said that it is very important for Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan to cooperate due to the intertwined position of towns in the Fergana Valley and for the establishment of peace and stability in the region. Davutoglu emphasised that Turkey appreciates the exemplary reaction of Uzbekistan first and foremost as a member of the UN Security Council.As Foreign Minister Davutoglu has stated, Turkey will stand by Kyrgyzstan from now on, just as it has done so before. Turkey believes that Kyrgyzstan will “overcome these difficult times and once again attain trust and stability”. In this context, minister Davutoglu has emphasised that they will “make every necessary contribution as Turkey and as term president of CICA in order to ground stability among states in Asia, especially among friend states in Central Asia”. Indeed Kazakhstan, which is the OSCE term president, and Turkey which is the CICA (Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia) term president, have taken a joint decision to support Kyrgyzstan on international platforms.It is very important for general elections to be held in Kyrgyzstan on the date declared within the framework of the new constitution and the support of the public secured. It is only through this that political and economic improvements may be achieved in Kyrgyzstan. In this context Turkey will continue to lend support to this country for procuring internal peace and international support.That the First Deputy Prime Minister Almazbek Atambayev of the transitional Kyrgyz government has emphasised that during the presidential inauguration only Turkey was represented with Davutoglu describes the present situation correctly. Turkey giving over USD 21 million to Kyrgyzstan in aid must also be evaluated in this light. The USD 21 million worth of aid consists of a cash transfer worth USD 10 million and residential construction investment worth USD 11 million in the south of the country through the Turkish Cooperation and Development Agency (TCDA).On the other hand, upon the onset of the events of 7th of April, Turkey had first dispatched 35 tonnes of aid materials and an ambulance in the framework of emergency action measures planning and later, following developments in the south of the country, it sent 27 tonnes of aid material. However, more needs to be done. For this reason, Turkey’s constructive efforts to secure stability continue after the latest incidents in Kyrgyzstan. It is very important to open channels of dialogue within the country and to keep them open. Ankara maintains its pledge to move in partnership with countries in the region and continues its initiatives and contributions to promote regional economic development.Initiatives such as the “White Beards Summit” which is planned to be held in Istanbul and which aims to bring together the leaders of parties in the region such as the Kyrgyz, the Uzbeks and the Ahska Turks in Turkey, as well as the “Regional Countries Platform Meeting” and the “Meeting of Donors” must be given their due worth. At present, world politics is carrying more tension than it can bear. The attack of globalisation and its follow up tremors experienced one after another in different fields force Turkey to become more involved and proactive in the geographical area which forms its cultural and historical hinterland.Along with the responsibilities arising from being a member of the UN Security Council, Turkey might draw more attention from now on with its activities in the region running along the “motherland-fatherland axis”. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Turkish Red Crescent Sends AidFollowing the events in Kyrgyzstan, the Turkish Red Crescent has dispatched a total of 55 tonnes of humanitarian aid supplies to this country. In a written statement, the Turkish Red Crescent announced that following the humanitarian crisis in Kyrgyzstan, two aid aircraft with 20 and 40 tonnes capacity had been sent to the region. It was declared that of the aircraft, the first had landed in the city of Andijan in Uzbekistan and the second in the city of Osh in Kyrgyzstan. It was also stated that the Turkish Red Crescent is making intensive efforts to deliver aid to those rendered refugees due to fighting between the Uzbeks and the Kyrgyz in Osh and that the organisation would send a new team of four, three of whom are psychologists, to Uzbekistan.
