Kazakh leader disagrees with theories about catastrophic developments of Central Asian events

ASTANA. April 25. KAZINFORM - Nursultan Nazarbayev, the President of Kazakhstan does not agree with catastrophic theories of further developments in the events in Central Asia. This opinion has been expressed by Nursultan Nazarbayev, the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan in his welcoming speech to the participants of the Eurasian Media Forum 2013, being held in "Kazmediacenter".

"In general, the increasing role of the media sphere leads to the creation of new media, which I would call “means of mass innovation” forming a high standard of development not only in the economy but also in politics, social life, spiritual and moral society mood. I see this as the main mission for the national and global media in the 21st century.

Dear Forum members! Our region of Central Asia just as the whole world is entering a period of change. In this context the problem of regional security, particularly in the global dimension of the next decade is very relevant. I have to say that I will not accept the catastrophic theories that we read and hear all around. I do not think that the countdown timer is already on and brings it to a kind of "rush hour" by 2014 when Afghanistan will end in the active phase of the operation of international coalition forces", said the President.

According to N.Nazarbayev, the external perception of the Central Asian region has a strong inertia of the past caused by the unresolved archaic stereotypes of thinking peculiar to some circles of media, analysts, and often politicians. They do not see or do not want to see the changed realities of the region.
