Edmon Marukyan Urges Foreign Ministry to Summon the Ambassador of Kazakhstan to Ask for Explanations

The leader of Bright Armenia party Edmon Marukyan urges the Armenian Foreign Ministry to summon the ambassador of Kazakhstan to ask for explanations regarding the incident in the city of Karaganda. The office of Bright Armenia party informs about this.  

Hundreds of Kazakhs took part in a protest in Karaganda, after the murder of a 23-year-old Kazakh in this city. Three local Armenians are suspects in the murder.

“After the murder on New Year’s Eve in Kazakhstan's Karaganda, the situation is gradually becoming uncontrollable and explosive, keeping our compatriots alarmed and threatening their safety and security. Preliminary observations show that the Azerbaijanis have succeeded in provoking this dispute by turning it into an anti-Armenian action.

In this situation we call on the Armenian Foreign Ministry to summon the ambassador of Kazakhstan to ask for explanations regarding the recent developments in Karaganda and get assurances that official Astana is doing its best to protect the rights, safety and property of our compatriots and to prevent the threats,” Marukyan stated.

 

An investigation on suspicion of inciting ethnic and religious hatred has been launched.
