Karim Massimov called to learn a lesson from the clashes, at the government meeting on Zhanaozen, Tengrinews.kz reports.
“Deep reasons of what has happened need certain investigation. I think that I have to perform certain work and submit it to the President for review. So that it doesn’t happen in Zhanaozen or other cities again. I think that this is the moment when we all have to unite around our President and once again show the strength and stability of our country, the strength of our President and stability in our community,” Karim Massimov said. “This is a very good lesson for all of us.”
Finishing the government meeting on Zhanaozen, Prime-Minister addressed everyone with a request to perform all the government’s instructions in time.
