RELOCATE UZBEK ASYLUM SEEKERS PRESENTLY IN THE KYRGYZ

REF: SECSTATE 131485 
 
(SBU) PolChief raised urgent need for temporary relocation of 
Uzbek asylum seekers with  UN Division Director Adrian Ligor 
July 15, stressing the humanitarian urgency of this matter. 
Ligor said that he was unable to provide an initial 
substantive response, but committed to share the points with 
the MFA Human Rights Division and the Romanian delegation in 
Geneva. In a subsequent conversation with PolOff, Andreea 
Chiriac, Deputy Director of the MFA Human Rights, OSCE and 
Council of Europe Division, stated that the MFA would need to 
discuss the "viability" of possible relocation of asylum 
seekers in Romania with Interior Ministry officials.  She 
added that current torrential flooding and its humanitarian 
aftermath in Romania would likely limit the GOR's "capacity" 
to offer assistance to the asylum seekers.
