On Wednesday, March 7, member of Kyrgyz parliament Azimbek Beknazarov suggested paying off the country’s foreign debt by planting opium. Beknazarov, who is now a member of opposition faction “For reforms”, used to be Kyrgyzstan’s Prosecutor General.

“To solve this problem [of foreign debt] we need unordinary steps. I know that my suggestion will stir a heated debate. This year Afghanistan announced almost officially that it will increase opium crops. We have to do the same and permit our people to plant opium for a year or two. After that all international organizations will raise havoc and offer themselves to write off out country’s debts,” the deputy said.
