Almambet Shykmamatov: Kazakhstan wouldn’t provide assistance in any case

In any case, Kazakhstan would not provide $ 100 million in assistance, especially after the situation at the state border. The deputy of the party Almambet Shykmamatov said to 24.kg news agency.

According to him, a few years ago Kazakhstan promised to provide technical assistance to our country in the amount of $ 100 million within the framework of support for entering the EEU, and since then there have been no promotions. «They wouldn’t have given this money anyway, but they would have reflected in the documents that we asked them for it,» Almambet Shykmamatov said.

«They have enough own financial problems. Their budget always comes with a deficit, and to refuse of those means that wouldn’t have been allocated is purely tactically correct,» he said.

Recall, on February 9, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan signed a detailed agreement on rendering assistance by the Kazakh side. This is a document, under which Kazakhstan undertakes to help Kyrgyzstan adapt to the conditions of the EEU and provides $ 100 million in the form of a grant.

Yesterday 24.kg news agency reported that Kyrgyzstan intends to unilaterally break the agreement with Kazakhstan signed within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union last year. The corresponding document was sent to the parliament. The initiators are the Ministry of Economy, the State Customs and Border Guard Service.

Earlier, Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev, commenting on the situation on the Kyrgyz-Kazakh border, said that Kyrgyzstan doesn’t need assistance from Kazakhstan.
