2010-04-08 13:31 BJT


For some analysis on the unrest in Kyrgyzstan, we're joined on the line by Tao Wenzhao, a senior research fellow from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

Q1: Hello, Mr. Tao. It's been one day after the unrest began in Kyrgyzstan. The president has fled the capital Bishkek, while the opposition has put a caretaker government in place.

Can you tell us what sparked such a large-scale unrest?

Q2: We know that the US leases an airbase in Kyrgyzstan and Russia also has one there. What will any outcome to the unrest mean for the United States and Russia ?
