BISHKEK, March 3 (RIA Novosti) - The committee on
constitutional legislation in the Kyrgyz parliament has
postponed the discussion of the termination of an agreement
with 11 countries on the deployment of their military
contingents at Manas airbase, a spokesperson said on Tuesday.
"Tuesday's committee meeting has been postponed until
further notice," the source said, without giving any details.
Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev signed on February 20 a
decree to close the U.S. Manas airbase in the north of
Kyrgyzstan. The base had been used since 2001 to support NATO
operations in nearby Afghanistan.
