DDTC Issues Announcement on New and Pending ITAR Licenses to Kyrgyzstan

As a result of this week's ousting of the President of Kyrgyzstan by the opposition, the State Department's Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) today issued the following announcement regarding delays in license applications for the export of ITAR-controlled items to Kyrgyzstan:

In response to recent events in the Kyrgyz Republic (Kyrgyzstan), DDTC wishes to inform exporters that although there is no current U.S. or UN arms embargo on Kyrgyzstan, the final decision of license applications for the export of U.S. Munitions List (USML) items to Kyrgyzstan received from this date or currently in the review process may be delayed. License applications will continue to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, but approval should not be assumed. We encourage exporters to take the current situation into account and if applying for a new license to export or re-export USML items to Kyrgyzstan, that the license application provide detailed information on the end-use and end-user of the USML items.

The PDF version of the DDTC's announcement, which also includes the text of the White House statement on Kyrgyzstan, can be found here.
