During the meeting, the Minister also addressed the Japanese Ambassador with a request to provide support from the Government of Japan on updating UN General Assembly’s Resolution No. 68/218 dated December 20, 2013, “The role of the International Community in Preventing Radiation threat in Central Asia” co-authored along with countries such as USA, Canada, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Russia and Japan as well.

Behavior rules in emergency situations

  • FIRE

    Fires are flames that have gone out of a human being’s control. Fire starts when the temperature of a material’s ignition turns out to be lower than the temperature of the heat source. Among the most common causes of fire, the following can be noted: carelessness of people, defects of electric or heating appliances, self-ignition, lightning, a large number of electric appliances connected to one socket, etc.


    An earthquake is one of the scariest and devastating natural occurrences. They happen in the so-called seismoactive regions of the Earth. One of such regions is the territory of the Kyrgyz Republic.


    High water is a significant flooding of an area as a result of an increase in the water level in a river, lake during the period of snow melting, rainstorms, wind seiches, in case of blockages, ice jams and so on.


    Landslide – is a downward drift of loose rock under the influence of gravity, especially when lose material is saturated with water. It is one of the forms of a disaster.


    A mud stream (mudflow) is a rapid stream flow from a mixture of water and rock debris that appear suddenly in basins of small mountainous rivers. Translated from Arabic, the word ‘sel’ means ‘torrential flow’. Imagine a furiously churning wave the height of a five-story house that rushes along the gorge with the speed of an express train, breaking down centuries-old trees and easily moving boulders weighing many tons. The most powerful mudflows usually happen in June, when the hot sun intensively melts glaciers and millions of tons of water accumulate in moraines – giant accumulations of rock debris deposited by a glacier. If a moranic lake situated at an altitude of 3000 - 3500 meters above sea level breaks out, a chain reaction begins: a mud and rock flow emerges, that sweeps down and constantly increases in volume and strength.


    An avalanche is a snow mass that has slipped from a mountain slope and is moving under the force of gravity. It drags along more and more masses of snow on its way.


    Rain storms are the cause of the most common disaster type – floods – and therefore incur the main economic damages.


    A flood is a significant flooding of an area resulting from an increase in water level of a river, lake or sea during the period of snow melting, rain showers, wind seiches, in case of blockages, ice jams and so on.
