    A number of international and regional organizations, as well as countries neighboring violence-hit Kyrgyzstan are holding consultations on possible international intervention to settle the crisis in the Central Asian country.

    A number of international and regional organizations, as well as countries neighboring violence-hit Kyrgyzstan are holding consultations on possible international intervention to settle the crisis in the Central Asian country.

    During a satellite linkup between Bishkek and UN Headquarters in New York, a special representative to the UN Secretary General, Miroslav Jenca, said possible intervention would only occur if Kyrgyz authorities agreed.

    "Many believe that international presence is needed in Kyrgyzstan but consultations with partners are necessary," Jenca said.

    "The question of international intervention always brings about a mass of issues, and this demands consultations with the countries in the region, as well as with regional and international organizations. Consultations are being held, but a decision on the issue of international intervention will nonetheless remain with the interim government of Kyrgyzstan."
