The withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan should not have a disastrous impact on regional security, President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbaev said on Thursday.
Reportedly, the Kazakh President rejected possible negative scenarios linked to the developments of the situation in Afghanistan after the withdrawal of the ISAF in 2014.
Nazarbaev assessed highly the results of the coalition mission. “Direct threats to security have reduced ten times and have been localized. There are internal problems in achieving a settlement, but there are positive results too,” the Kazakh President said.
He said that at present, the world community must make efforts to achieve a long-term stabilization in Afghanistan, especially help to promote the country’s economic development. “Unfortunately, in this case the achievements are still very modest,” he added.
