In its relations with Kyrgyzstan, Moscow acts on the assumption that deposed President Kurbanbek Bakiyev has formally resigned, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday.

In its relations with Kyrgyzstan, Moscow acts on the assumption that deposed President Kurbanbek Bakiyev has formally resigned, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday.

"I know - and this was officially announced - that Kurmanbek Bakiyev faxed a letter of resignation to Bishkek.  His verbal statements can hardly overrule this document," Lavrov said.

On Wednesday Bakiyev, who had fled Kyrgyzstan following the April 6-8 riots, said he had not in fact resigned and urged world leaders not to recognize the republic's interim government.
