Situation in Kazakhstan discussed during a briefing in Ethiopia


Ambassador of Kazakhstan to Ethiopia, Permanent Representative of Kazakhstan to the African Union Barlybay Sadykov held a briefing for Ethiopian media journalists on the situation in Kazakhstan and the state’s measures to normalize the situation in the country.
In his speech, the Ambassador said that Kazakhstan had been subjected to armed aggression by well-coordinated terrorist groups trained abroad. The purpose of this large-scale attack was an attempt to organize an armed coup. He stressed that currently the law enforcement agencies and the Armed Forces of Kazakhstan are resisting terrorists, and not «peaceful protesters».
According to B.Sadykov, peaceful protesters are not subject to any persecution by the state. Their demands were fully heard and satisfied by the state in the first days of the protest.
It was noted that the President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev highly appreciated the results of the work of the CSTO peacekeeping mission, which effectively coped with the task of protecting strategic state facilities and plans to leave Kazakhstan within the next 10 days.
