Kazakhstan does not intend to recognize the "referendums" on the territory of four partially occupied Ukrainian regions regarding their "accession" to the Russian Federation. This was stated by the spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan Aibek Smadiyarov, the Kazakh Telegraph Agency reports.
According to him, Astana "is based on the principles of territorial integrity of states, their sovereign equality and peaceful coexistence."
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs added that President Kassym Jomart-Tokayev "repeatedly, in particular, in his recent speech from the UN rostrum, clearly stated the importance of strictly observing the principle of international law, which is based on the Charter of this global universal organization."
The press secretary of the country's Ministry of Foreign Affairs "confirmed the readiness to facilitate the establishment of a political dialogue" between the occupying country Russia and the victim country of its attack and genocidal war, Ukraine. He called Kazakhstan's "most important task" to be "maintaining stability both at the regional and global level."
