The Kyrgyz interim government will have "serious questions" to ask of any CIS country that provides refuge to ousted Kyrgyz president Kurmanbek Bakiyev, Deputy Prime Minister of the interim government Azimbek Beknazarov said.
"The CIS republics will not give Bakiyev refuge," Beknazarov told journalists.
He denied claims that Bakiyev had traveled from Kazakhstan, where he is known to have spent several days, to Minsk in Belarus.
"[Belarus President] Lukashenko would not go there" because between countries there "exists agreements on the extradition of criminals"
He also announced that "in bilateral relations between states, serious questions will arise" if any CIS country gives refuge to Bakiyev.
