Embassy Statement on Formation of New Coalition Government

The United States congratulates the Kyrgyz Republic on the formation of a new coalition government under the leadership of Prime Minister Djoomart Otorbayev.  The orderly and transparent formation of the new coalition government is a testament to the four years of progress made in building the Kyrgyz democratic institutions enshrined in its 2010 constitution.  We look forward to working with the new government to strengthen the partnership between the United States and the Kyrgyz Republic.  The United States will continue to support the Kyrgyz Republic in its development of inclusive democracy based upon the rule of law, respect for civil society, and human rights.  In recognition of the fourth anniversary of the events of April 7, 2010, the embassy renews its expression of condolences for those who lost their lives that day and extends its sympathies to their families.
