Kazakhstan Foreign Ministry tagged the 'rallies of solidarity with striking oil workers' small and their participants unaware of the real situation, Tengrinews.kz reports. Astana called not to pay much attention to the rallies held at Kazakhstan embassies after Zhanaozen clashes.
“Small protest rallies took place in Moscow, Kiev, London and Vienna. We think that first of all they (participants of the rallies) are not informed.
"As the President has said at the Security Council, labor disputes have to be separated from the actions of bandits. Most likely, the organizers of these rallies are not aware of the real situation. There is no need to exaggerate the significance of such rallies and attach any special attention to them, as they were small.
"The protesters are not aware of the fact that Zhanaozen clashes are not related to the labor dispute, that these are simply bandit actions, these are crimes. It is unacceptable to protect them or make any kind of calls to Kazakhstan government before the end of the investigation,” official representative of Kazakhstan Foreign Ministry Altai Abibullayev said.
