Ousted Kyrgyz president Kurmanbek Bakiyev is to hold a news conference in Minsk on April 23, a national press center official told RIA Novosti on Thursday.
Bakiyev made on Wednesday his first statement after the April Kyrgyz riots. He said he has not resigned from his post as president and called for world leaders not to recognize the Kyrgyz interim government.
"At 11 a.m. local time [08:00 GMT] on Friday Kurmanbek Bakiyev will hold a news conference," the spokesman said.
