US Embassy to Kazakhstan has commented on the US Homeland Security Department's decision to include Kazakhstan into the specially designated countries list. Today, July 22, the representative office of the US Foreign Department distributed its statement, Tengrinews.kz reports.

“Questions have been raised in the media about the assessment of the United States Government of Kazakhstan and international terrorism. The U.S. Government does not consider that Kazakhstan in any way supports terrorism. On the contrary, we regard Kazakhstan as a strategic partner in our common struggle against terrorism. We value and acknowledge Kazakhstans support for counter-terrorism in international fora such as the OSCE, where Kazakhstan served as Chairman-in-Office in 2010,” the statement says.

"In addition to its own efforts, Kazakhstan has on a bilateral basis provided extensive cooperation and critical assistance to U.S. efforts in the region and globally to fight terrorism. These efforts are important to both our countries and we look forward to continuing and strengthening them,” it continues.

Information on the US Department of Homeland Security adding Kazakhstan into the list of specially designated countries was published on July 21. The list includes countries whose citizens have to undergo thorough checks on involvement in terrorist organizations, a so called Third Agency Check.

Kazakhstan Ministry of Foreign Affairs has already made a statement in regards to this development. Secretary of Nur Otan Party Kairat Satybaldy has also commented on this decision of the US agency.
