MOSCOW, April 26 (Itar-Tass) —— One of the reasons for the “Arab Spring” in the Middle East and North Africa is the thirst for change among the people living in those countries, Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev said.
“I feel very sorry for people in the countries where so-called revolutions take place,” Nazarbayev told Russia 24 television on Wednesday, April 25. “These countries have been thrown back at least 15 years in their economic development.”
He believes there are several reasons for these changes: “internal problems – deteriorating quality of life, poverty and unemployment. These people can be led anywhere if they are desperate”.
“Someone was interested [to do so] and there was a pretext,” he added.
“Expectations for change as nothing had changed there for decades. People always expect changes but when they make changes, they notice that their life has not become better,” Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev said.
