This is seen in Europe and other countries,” Nursultan Nazarbayev called Kazakhstan residents to be ready for everything.

This is a reality for the regions with fast-growing population. This is true for our country as well. I am talking about details because the coming decades will be difficult for the whole world. We have to be prepared for any difficulties,” the President told the audience.
