US Considers Amendments to Kazakhstan’s Constitution a “Step in the Right Direction,” Kazinform Information Agency Reports

Sean McCormack, Spokesman of the US Department of State announced this at the daily press briefing in Washington commenting on the Law on amendments and additions to the Constitution of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Particularly, it was noted that “there are also a whole host of other political reforms that we believe move the country in the right direction.”

“We're not going to lay out the template for them and say: You have to follow this exact path to Kazakh democracy. It's not the way it works.

We, as well as the Europeans, have been working very closely with them to urge them in the right direction. It's not going to happen all at once.

We're not going to be able to determine the pace.

Eventually you have to have the Kazakh people be able to choose whomever they want to lead Kazakhstan. And again, this has to emerge from Kazakh society and from a discussion within the Kazakhstan political elite, as well as with the people.

It is overall moving in the right direction,” Sean McCormack, the Spokesman of the US Department of State said at the press briefing.
