MINSK, 10 January (BelTA) – Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko has expressed condolences to Kazakhstan President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian leader.
“It is with great concern that the Belarusian people have learned about the dramatic events in Kazakhstan. The organized attack of bandit groups on your country, which caused numerous human casualties and destruction, once again showed us all the terrible threat that international terrorism poses to the world. The subversive goal of the extremists is obvious, which is to destabilize multi-ethnic Kazakhstan, sow chaos, unleash a kith-on-kin war in the country in order to commit an anti-constitutional coup and change the political course,” the message reads.
According to Aleksandr Lukashenko, Belarus has already faced a similar challenge, so it understands the severity of the situation and the enormous responsibility of the leadership for the fate of the country.
“The Belarusians consider the most severe tests, endured by the brotherly people of Kazakhstan, as their own tragedy. We express our hope for the establishment of peace and concord in Kazakhstan as soon as possible and are ready to help stabilize the situation in every possible way,” the Belarusian leader said.
Aleksandr Lukashenko asked Kassym-Jomart Tokayev to convey his words of deep sympathy and support to the families and friends of the victims, as well as his wishes for a speedy recovery to the injured.
