U.S. Afghanistan re-supply air base in Kyrgyzstan may re-open


hmmmm... i wonder what sort of backroom deal is driving this potential reversal...
Kyrgyzstan has offered to resume talks with the US on the possible continuation of the operation of the air base in Manas, a source in the American administration told the media.

“We continue the negotiations with Kyrgyzstan over keeping the military base in Manas. I believe we could reach an agreement on it,” the source said.

The senior US official, whose name was not revealed, added that even if the base is closed, NATO has other logistical options for its mission in Afghanistan.

This is an unexpected development in the story of the controversial military base, which the Central Asian country refused to host any longer in February.

i seriously do not think this would be under consideration by kyrgyzstan if it wasn't getting some sort of ok from russia...
