Kazakhstan has requested the U.S. Department of State to provide information on the children adopted from Kazakhstan, Tengrinews reports citing the chairman of the Commission for Children's Rights Protection of Kazakhstan Ministry of Education and Science Raissa Sher.

According to her, the meeting of the Special Advisor for Children's Issues of the U.S. Department of State Susan Jacobs, Adoption Division Chief David Mico and representatives of the U.S. Consulate with representatives of the Kazakhstan Commission for Children’s Rights Protection and Kazakhstan General Prosecutor’s Office was held today, on September 23. And meetings with representative of the U.S. Department of Justice and social services will be held in the United States next week. They will discuss ways of tracking and checking the information on the underground Internet network trading children adopted from Kazakhstan and other countries.

“A commission will be formed to make the check. Besides, an agreement was reached at the meeting that the U.S. Department of State will be taking part in detection of adoptive families that fail to observe their obligations towards their adopted children, including cases of re-adoption or relocation to specialized institutions. There will be work groups consisting of representative of the competent authorities of Kazakhstan and the United States. They will meet annually to discuss international adoption issues and establish interaction,” the official said.

She added that Kazakhstan passed the list of the children adopted by U.S. citizens from Kazakhstan: the total of around 6 thousand children since the year 2000. “The main purpose of this list is to obtain the State Department's support and access to additional information on the living conditions of the children adopted from Kazakhstan,” Raissa Sher stressed. The temporary ban on foreign adoption is still in effect in Kazakhstan.

Earlier this month Reuters uncovered an American online network doing what they call "private re-homing". The network was used to exchange adopted children - mostly originating from foreign countries, but 30% of the kids are Americans - who were no longer wanted by their adoptive parents for one reason or another. Some of the kids were even traded for clearly sexual purposes. Some of the kids adopted from Kazakhstan were among the victims of the "exchange".
