US/EU Confirm: Kazakhstan Supports Sanctions Against Russia

The government of the country has created a working group to consult with the authors of sanctions against Russia and prevent their negative impact on the economy of Kazakhstan

On September 15, Kazakh foreign minister Mukhtar Tleuberdi said that on behalf of president Qasym-Jomart Toqaev, a particular group had been set up in the country for consultations with the European Union and the United States. The group's goal is to monitor sanctions against Russia and prevent the application of sanctions against Kazakhstan against the background of excessive involvement in business relations with the aggressor country.

"Kazakhstan is not subject to secondary sanctions. We have created a government working group to prevent the negative impact of anti-Russian sanctions on our economy, including the prevention of secondary sanctions. The working group is successfully working, regular consultations are being held with the European Commission and the US administration," Mukhtar Tleuberdi.

Kazakhstan has chosen its progressive path and is showing itself to be a robust and independent state. In response to Putin's blackmail with the Caspian pipeline, president Toqaev ordered the diversification of energy logistics bypass Russia. Since the beginning of this month, Kazakhstan has been partially supplying crude oil through the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan Azerbaijan oil pipeline. In this diplomatic way, Qasym-Jomart Toqaev showed Putin that Russia would not manipulate Kazakhstan.
