«Social issues will be resolved. I urge all of you not to be led by provocateurs. Work jointly with law enforcement officers. The Kyrgyz have been famous for their generosity and hospitality since ancient times. We must strive to preserve and strengthen good relations with the neighboring republic.

Be patient and restrained. We will solve all the issues, it takes time. We must maintain peace and tranquility for the sake of future of our children, for the future of our country.
