According to Ned Price, a spokeswoman for the US State Department, Washington expects the Kazakh authorities to resolve the economic and political issues.
“We are closely following the deployment of CSTO forces in Kazakhstan. We are concerned about the continuation of the state of emergency, we extend our condolences to all those who have suffered from the violence, and we strongly condemn the violence and the destruction of property. “We urge the demonstrators to protest peacefully, and we urge the authorities to show restraint,” Prahs said.
The State Department spokesman also said that Washington had questions about the deployment of CSTO forces in Kazakhstan, as “the Kazakh government has its resources, they are strong.”
“We leave it to the Kazakh authorities to express their views on the deployment of foreign forces on their own territory. “We will be very careful about any human rights violations, all attempts by foreign forces to take over Kazakh institutions,” Ned Price said.
