–        having regard to Rule 135 of its Rules of Procedure,

 

A. whereas the EU has a clear interest in a peaceful, democratic and economically prosperous Kyrgyzstan; whereas the EU has committed itself, in particular through its Central Asia Strategy, to act as a partner of the countries in the region;

 

B. whereas the EU- Kyrgyzstan relations are based on a Partnership and Cooperation Agreement since 1999;

 

C. whereas the countries of Central Asia face a number of common challenges, such as poverty and serious threats to human security and the need to strengthen democracy, respect of human rights, good governance and the rule of law;

 

D. whereas a group of United Nations human rights experts have urged the Parliament of Kyrgyzstan to reject a bill that would introduce criminal and administrative sanctions for acts aimed at forming “a positive attitude towards non-traditional sexual orientation;

 

1. Notes that laws that discriminate against one group of people threatens the fundamental rights of all people;

10. Urges Kyrgyzstan, in the period leading to the Fourteenth meeting of the Cooperation Council between the EU and the Kyrgyz Republic, to continue reforms leading to transparency, independence of the judiciary, inter-ethnic reconciliation and respect for human rights as these are key factors for the long-term sustainable development of the country;

 

11. Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Vice-President of the Commission/High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, the Council, the Commission, the parliaments and governments of the Member States, the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the Government and Parliament of Kyrgyzstan.
