Afghan and Middle Eastern combatants in riots in Kazakhstan


Afghan and Middle Eastern combatants in riots in Kazakhstan

Nursultan, Jan 10 (Prensa Latina) The president of Kazakhstan, Kasym-Zhomart Tokayev, said on Monday that the violent events that took place in recent days in his country involved foreign combatants, mainly from Central Asian nations such as Afghanistan and the Middle East.

“I have no doubts that it was a terrorist attack,” said the head of State in a video conference with the president of the European Council, Charles Michel, according to a statement from the press service of the Kazakh presidency.

He warned that Kazakhstan was the victim of a well-organized and well-prepared act of aggression with the participation of foreign combatants.

“The idea was to form a zone of controlled chaos on our territory with the subsequent seizure of power. That is why, an anti-terrorist operation was launched in Kazakhstan,” Tokayev explained.

During the conversation, the president described the tragic events as an unprecedented act of aggression against the State, which caused many victims among law enforcers and civilians.

He reported that economic damages caused by the riots are estimated at 2-3 billion dollars, with damages in some 1,300 commercial facilities, more than 100 shopping centers and banks, in addition to some 500 police cars that were set on fire.
