Kyrgyzstan's President has recently given in to some of the demands by the opposition and has accepted to create a constitutional council to discuss constitutional amendments. Whether this move will help to allay political instability remains unclear, as unrest in the South of the country due to the killings in Aksy goes on, and at least one opposition member has refused to participate in the new council.

After tragic events in Aksy, picketings all over Kyrgyzstan and the establishment of the new political bloc "For impeachment of Akaev and people's reforms", Askar Akaev finally decided to accept the points of view of the opposition and come to a compromise taking into account all their demands.

It does not require much guesswork to see why the president of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev flew off to Johannesburg so hastily to attend the World Summit on Sustainable Development. In view of the dying Aral Sea, the polluted Caspian and other looming disasters he could not afford to miss the opportunity to draw the attention of the world organizations to these dangers.

The alarming news that the Aral Sea was desiccating rapidly caused a general depression in early nineties.

THE UYGHUR MINORITY IN KYRGYZSTAN

Published in Field Reports

By Rustam Mukhamedov (9/11/2002 issue of the CACI Analyst)

Uyghurs are one of the national minorities, who live in Kyrgyzstan. According to the last official statistics for 1999, there were 46,700 uyghurs in Kyrgyzstan, but unofficial sources say that the total is about 100,000, the difference arising since in Soviet time many Uyghurs were registered as Uzbek. Uyghurs are on the fifth place after the Kyrgyz, Uzbek, Russian and Dungan (Hui) minorities in Kyrgyzstan.
