Askar Akayev announced on Tuesday night that he was ready to resign
Askar Akayev announced on Tuesday night that he was ready to resign as the Kyrgyz president provided that relevant guarantees were granted to him. Asked by a First Channel's Vremya news program correspondent if he was ready to step down, Akayev responded: "Of course, if I am granted relevant guarantees and this is in line with the current Kyrgyz law." He also said he was not going to issue any decrees. "First and foremost, I am a realist, and I have to face reality," he said. Akayev disagreed with the opposition claiming he had been a dictator: "The latest developments have shown what kind of dictator I was. I think a clear and obvious answer has been given to this accusation. If I had been a dictator, I would certainly have been able to defend both the government house and myself." Akayev stressed that he would hold negotiations with the only legitimate leader remaining in Kyrgyzstan - parliament speaker Omurbek Tekebayev.
