Tajikistan is following the development of events in Kazakhstan, the Tajik Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said in a statement released today.

The MFA stated that they are observing the cases of violence against civilians and representatives of law enforcement forces, seizure of government bodies, and robberies, with much concern. The fact that unauthorized actions have led to the emergence of illegal armed formations, which ended up with lethal weapons and special equipment is especially troubling.

“We fully share the concern of the leadership of Kazakhstan regarding the attempts to destabilize the situation in the country by galvanizing people to protest. We are confident that the wise people of Kazakhstan and their leadership will be able to put an end to acts of violence through dialogue as soon as possible,” the Tajik MFA noted.

They stressed that guided by long friendship and the principle of strategic partnership, Tajikistan expresses support to Kazakhstan in its efforts to restore peace and tranquility in the country. Following Tajikistan’s allied obligations within the framework of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, the government intends to participate in a collective peacekeeping operation to provide assistance to Kazakhstan in order to eliminate the threat that has arisen.

“We express our deep condolences to the families and relatives of those killed as a result of illegal actions,” the MFA noted.
