Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan Akylbek Japarov said that the country is ready to fulfill its allied obligations within the framework of the CSTO in connection with the appeal of President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev. This is stated on the website of the Kyrgyz Cabinet of Ministers.
“In accordance with the decision of the head of state and the Council of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), the Kyrgyz Republic confirms its readiness to provide all-round support to brotherly Kazakhstan,” the publication says.
Earlier, Kyrgyz President Sadyr Japarov discussed the current situation in Kazakhstan with the Kazakh President, as well as with the leaders of Russia and Armenia.
On January 5, amid the pogroms in Kazakhstan, President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev appealed to the heads of the CSTO states with a request to help Kazakhstan overcome “this terrorist threat.”
Protests in Kazakhstan erupted on January 2 in the city of Zhanaozen, Mangistau Oblast, due to an increase in the price of a liter of liquefied gas to 120 tenge (about 21 rubles). Before that, the price for a liter of gas was 60 tenge. Two days later, clashes between protesters and the police and the military began in Almaty and a number of other cities. Clashes also took place in Aktobe, Taraz, Aktau and other settlements.https://watchlivenetwork.com
