The Political Situation in Kyrgyzstan:
Implications for the United States
Wednesday, July 6
12:00 - 2:00 PM
The situation in Kyrgyzstan has a critical bearing on American national security. The Manas Transit Center outside the Kyrgyz capital of Bishkek is the vital supply link for U.S. and NATO forces fighting in Afghanistan. In the last year, the political situation in Kyrgyzstan has undergone dramatic change. The former president, Kurmanbek Bakiyev, was overthrown, elections were held, and Kyrgyzstan adopted a new constitution and became a parliamentary republic. How have these changes affected U.S. interests at a time when the northern supply route for the war effort has taken on increased significance? To discuss this question, Hudson Institute assembled a distinguished panel of experts:
Baktygulov, Satter, Cropsey, Lanskoy, Usmanov
Seth Cropsey, Senior Fellow, Hudson Institute and former Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations and Low-Intensity Conflict, Department of Defense
Miriam Lanskoy, Director for Russia and Eurasia, National Endowment for Democracy
Seyitbek Usmanov, Director, Central Asia Free Market Institute, Bishkek
David Satter, Hudson Institute Senior Fellow moderated the panel.
