The Taliban movement will pose no threat to Kazakhstan

 ImageAs part of an international conference on the impact of Afghanistan on Central Asia, experts give a rough approximation on political life in Afghanistan for 2013–2014.

The Taliban Islamic movement  will pose no threat to Kazakhstan, reports a correspondent from Tengrinews.kz. Almaty political analysts made this statement at the international conference ‘Afghanistan: present and future impact on stability and security in Central Asia’.

“I do not see any connection between the bombings in Almaty, Astana, and Aktobe with statements from the Taliban about severe consequences for Kazakhstan in connection with sending troops to Afghanistan,” stated Alexander Knyazev in his speech before the conference. “Islamic movements as such do exist in Kazakhstan, but they are more heavily influenced by Russia and the North Caucasus.” Knyazev believes that the threat from the Taliban movement is overblown.

Knyazev went on to give rough estimate on political life in Afghanistan for 2013–2014. Afghanistan has a difficult problem with inter-ethnic contradictions. “If the Balochi form a party and come to power, then Afghanistan will become a chaotic area. Right now it is important to maintain the integrity of the country,” he added.

According to Bulat Sultanov, director of the Kazakhstan Institute for Strategic Studies under the President of Kazakhstan, the penetration of external forces wishing to destabilize the situation in Central Asia is increasing. “Our concern is that the Kazakhstan borders with Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan are no barrier to the entry of drug traffickers and migrant workers,” said Sultanov. “For Afghans, growing drugs is more profitable than getting married. This is a disaster.” He urged a complex approach to the issues by representatives of the Central Asian countries.

Recall that the Majilis (Kazakhstan’s lower parliament) approved a bill, under which Kazakhstan would send peacekeepers to Afghanistan within the framework of NATO cooperation. The Taliban movement responded to this by warning Kazakhstan of severe consequences for its decision to send troops in support of the NATO contingent in Afghanistan.
