E.O. 12958: DECL: 07/27/2015 TAGS: PREL KZ POLITICAL SUBJECT: KAZAKHSTAN: DEMARCHE AGAINST G-4 RESOLUTION
REF: A. ALMATY 2548
B. STATE 137602
C. STATE 126870
Classified By: Ambassador John Ordway, reasons 1.4 (B) and (D).
1. (C) As reported Ref A, Kazakhstani FM Tokayev told the Ambassador on July 8 that he had personally instructed Kazakhstan's ambassador to the UN to abstain on the G-4 resolution. Given that the GOK has already committed itself to abstaining, post sees no benefit in raising the issue again.
2. (C) We have no reason to believe that the GOK's position has changed since July 8, particularly since FM Tokayev left on vacation the following day and has not yet returned. USUN may wish to confirm with the Kazakhstani mission that they intend to abstain. ORDWAY
