Kyrgyzstan’s Foreign Ministry yesterday followed Kazakhstan (see Monitor, June 11) in protesting against last week’s nuclear weapons test conducted by China in the Xinjiang region. Kyrgyzstan urged China to adhere to international curbs on nuclear weapons tests, as Beijing itself has promised to do starting next autumn. As a neighbor of China, Kyrgyzstan shares Kazakhstan’s concerns over fallout from Chinese nuclear tests at the Lop Nor range in Xinjiang region. (Interfax, June 11)
