"Totally, as close neighbors, we perceived the events of recent months in Kyrgyzstan with great pain and anxiety.

The OSCE is ready to make a worthy contribution to this mission. We propose to significantly strengthen the OSCE Centre in Bishkek and its representation in the regions of Kyrgyzstan ", Saudabayev said.
