MOSCOW, April 14 (Xinhua) -- Kyrgyz interim leader Roza Otunbayeva told reporters on Wednesday that it was possible for the interim government to hold talks with ousted President Kurmanbek Bakiyev.

Otunbayeva said Deputy Prime Minister Azimbek Beknazarov would come to the southern regions of Osh and Jalalabad, Russia's RIA Novosti news agency reported.

Bakiyev who fled to the south following the clashes in Bishkek said he could resign on condition of guaranteed safety for himself and his family.

"I will resign if my and my relatives' security is guaranteed firstly. Second, if order (in the country) is guaranteed and roaming the streets with guns stops," Bakiyev said.

Otunbayeva said in Bishkek that interim government needed to work out a format for the meeting with Bakiyev.

Kyrgyz interim government on Tuesday issued an ultimatum for Bakiyev to surrender hours after it abolished his presidential immunity.
