ASTANA, January 29. /TASS/. The destruction of statehood by external forces facilitates the development of international terrorism, especially when there is a an upsurge in contradictions between the leading powers, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev told the congress of the Nur Otan political party on Friday.
"Why do we see an upsurge in extremism and terrorism here and there? Because the statehood there has been destroyed, it disappeared. In Afghanistan — because some countries deployed troops there and others destroyed the statehood. In a country where there is no order there are favorable conditions for all sorts of bandits and terrorists. The same thing is happening in Syria, Iraq and Libya. The internal stability has gone, the states collapsed due to outside interference and conditions for terrorists have emerged," Nazarbayev said.
The president urged Nur Otan to be ready at a time when "the process of changing the system of international relations is underway and an upsurge in contradictions between the leading powers is observed." He drew attention to the fact that "the trust between the world’s leading countries has fallen dramatically, which is very important. That means that international rules adopted previously are not complied with." Besides, "some aspects of global politics have acquired a contradictory nature. For example, on the one hand, the long-term problem of Iran’s nuclear problem has been resolved, and the other — nuclear tests in North Korea are held," Nazarbayev added.
