Kazakhstan to state position on further economic development
Astana. December 23. Kazakhstan Today - During the chairmanship in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Kazakhstan plans to state the position of some of the countries with small economies on their further economic development. The Minister for Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan, Marat Tazhin, informed today during the government session, the agency reports. During the session, the Prime Minister of Kazakhstan, Karim Masimov, reminded that now "There is a dispute on further economic development." "There are platforms, for example G20, but we are not a part of it, because the size of our economy is not so big and our voice is not heard there," he explained. "The European Union is able to state its position. We can express ourselves only on the international platform within the CIS or EurAsEC," the Prime Minister continued. "I think our chairmanship will give us an opportunity through OSCE to state the position on behalf of the countries, which are the members of neither Big Twenty, nor the BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, China and India), nor the European Union," the Prime Minister noted.
