Kazakhstan: We do Not Need Any Chauvinism or Local Nationalism
Kazakhstan - a country where 130 nations and nationalities live and there are 17 confessions. Assembly of People of Kazakhstan (APK) was established in 1995. It is an advisory body under the President of RK. Its original name was "The Assembly of Peoples of Kazakhstan," in 2007 the organization was renamed, because all people are equal and together constitute a single nation of Kazakhstan. The Assembly is composed of 350 members. The Assembly is formed by the Chairman of the Assembly from among the representatives of national, cultural and other associations. In every region of Kazakhstan, there are small Assemblies of Kazakhstan.
The country has more than 100 national schools, 170 Sunday schools functioning, where 23 native languages are studied. In three schools of national revival there are 29 departments, where 12 native languages are taught. For the financial support of these schools the government of Kazakhstan allocates annually 12 million tenge.
Kazbek Mansurov, Deputy Chairman of the ANC in Almaty, told "Armedia" IAA: "The city of Almaty is now home to about 1.5 million people of 120 nationalities. There is one main idea - we are all equal, we are biologically the same people, but we have different histories, different cultures, different traditions, and so that everything was in the same vein, everyone - regardless of nationality, race, religion is responsible for his people and for his government. And our work is carried out in this direction. Very often the head of the Kazakhstan stresses in his statements that we do not need any chauvinism or local nationalism, because both of them hinder. All are equal before the society, the state, the people. "
Narine Melkonyan, President of the Armenian ethno-cultural center of Almaty, said in an interview with "Armedia" IAA: "We do not even talk about tolerance, since this is our way of life. We are not divided in nationalities, we live as one big family. We know traditions and customs of other nations, by communicating with them, we become rich. There is no sense to share something, because here all live in the same conditions. The country has very good attitude towards Armenians."
On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Assembly of People of Kazakhstan a number of Armenian community activists were awarded the medal of the 20th anniversary of the ANC.
