Assistant Secretary Blake: The airbase continues to operate normally, and as you know continues to be a very important part of our overall effort in Afghanistan since most of our troops transit in and out of there on their way to Afghanistan... Our view is that they should uphold their obligations to restore democracy as quickly as possible and to ensure reconciliation between the communities particularly the ethnic Uzbek and Kyrgyz communities here.
