According to unofficial reports, already in the early days of riots, around 800 people were killed.
According to published report, the main cause of the tragedy in southern Kyrgyzstan was the political fanaticism of ethno-nationalism. According to the Commission head, after last year's events, still there are a lot of problems in Kyrgyzstan.
"I am very optimistic about the promises of the government to try to do everything possible to implement our recommendations," Kiljunen told Trend.
He said it is very important, since last year's events in the south were "terrible" and they have resulted in dividing the country into parts.
"We tried to make the report so that it would be useful both in terms of investigation of the events, as well as in terms of recommendations for the future of a society in pluralistic traditions, as well as in terms of ethnic harmony in the country," he added.
According to Kiljunen, there are a number of reasons for that there is much dissatisfaction with the report, including differences in the interpretation of what really happened.
The fact that the international community has recognized the report and its value is a positive fact, it is also very important that the Government is prepared to consider these recommendations of the Commission, the expert said.
"The government even created a special commission to monitor the implementation of our recommendations," said the Finnish politician.
