US temporary charge d'affaires in Kazakhstan John Ordway does not think that Taliban can be a big threat to Kazakhstan in relation to its plans to send military men to support coalition forces in Afghanistan, Interfax-Kazakhstan reports.

"I don’t think that we can say that extra risks appeared in relation to Talib’s statement. I think all countries taking part in countering terrorism are in danger regardless of whether they are involved in activities in Afghanistan directly or indirectly,” Ordway said.

As per Ordway, Central Asia and Kazakhstan are even at more risk of Talib’s response measures, than, for example, the United States. That is why it is very good to have an experience of military cooperation and participation. It will help improve coordination and enhance cooperation.

Earlier Tengrinews.kz English reported that Afghan talibs warned Kazakhstan that its decision to deploy troops to support NATO in Afghanistan will have grave consequences. As per Taliban, Kazakhstan is “focused on protection of American interests instead of taking into account the aspirations of their people and the regional interests.”
