ASTANA, March 28, 20:19 /ITAR-TASS/. Kazakhstan has taken a weighty and realistic position on Ukraine.
“We have expressed bewilderment over a note of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry. The Kiev authorities are mostly guided by emotions than common sense,” Kazakhstan’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhanbolat Usenov said on Friday.
“There are no reasons for discontent,” he said.
In the note of March 27, Ukraine voiced concern over Kazakhstani President Nursultan Nazarbayev’s statements on the situation in Ukraine.
“These statements run counter to the norms of international law and world countries’ position and contradict the principle of partnership between the two countries,” the note says.
Nazarbayev said, “In recent years, the Ukrainian political leadership swayed between Russia and Europe. The people and the country turned out to be divided into two parts. Finally, a coup d’etat has been committed.”
“Ukraine’s task is to overcome the crisis by political means and elect a legitimate president, parliament and government. Peace talks need to be held to find the solution to the problem,” Nazarbayev told a news briefing in The Hague on March 25.
“Today the Ukrainian charge d’affairs to Kazakhstan has been summoned to the Foreign Ministry once again to explain the position on the Ukrainian crisis. We’re not planning to react to the note in a written form,” Usenov said.
“President Nursultan Nazarbayev called for overcoming the Ukrainian crisis through peace talks of all parties, based on nationwide democratic elections and contribution to the country’s economic growth,” he said.
