Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 30 /Trend/
The faculty of the Diplomatic Academy of Kyrgyzstan nominated the current president Roza Otunbaeva for the Nobel Peace Prize 2012 and appealed to the Norwegian Nobel Committee with the request to support this nomination, CA-NEWS reported.
The decision to nominate Roza Otunbaeva was made this week for Otunbaeva's leadership in the April revolution which ousted the authoritarian regime in Kyrgyzstan and evoked the continuing wave of democratic revolutions in Middle East and North Africa.
The Diplomatic Academy noticed that Otunbaeva served as the leader of Kyrgyzstan during the critical period of the country. "The socio-political stability, peace, consolidation of the society was brought to the country largely due to courage, persistence and unselfishness of Roza Otunbaeva, the Diplomatic Academy said.
In April 2010 mass protests in Kyrgyzstan led to bringing down former president Kurmanbek Bakiyev. According to the official sources, clashes left more than 80 dead and about 1,500 injured.
