After announcing a shoot-and-death order against the rioters he called foreign stooges terrorists, Tokayev thanked friendly countries for providing assistance.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoan are some he has mentioned directly.

“We have to deal with well-prepared armed bandits, both local and foreign. More precisely, with terrorists. So we have to destroy them, this will end soon,” said the second president of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Tokayev revealed that Russia is not the only friend who has sent troops to Kazakhstan.

According to the former Soviet Union diplomat who had served in Singapore and China, peacekeepers from several other countries had also arrived.

Tokayev also emphasized that the involvement of foreign troops in this conflict was at his request and their presence was only temporary.

The 68-year-old politician also said that everything that happened today, including his decision to involve foreign parties, could not be separated from Kazakhstan’s own fault.

According to Tokayev, it is important to understand why the state has been ignoring the movements of the groups behind the riots.

“Ignoring preparations for terrorist attacks, by secret militant groups,” said the general chairman of Nur Otan, Kazakhstan’s largest party which has won every election since the country’s founding in 1999.
