For more on the Kyrgyzstan constitution referendum, we are joined by Professor Xie Tao from Beijing Foreign Studies University.
Q1: Hello, Professor Xie. The vote is seen as an important step to give legitimacy to the interim government. But if the government legitimizes its power, will it resolve the unrest in the country?
Q2: For the US and Russia, which both have air bases in Kyrgyzstan, the country is strategically important. How do you think the referendum will affect diplomatic ties between the three?
