An organized withdrawal of the CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organization) peacekeeping contingent from Kazakhstan will begin on January 13, the country’s President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev said, AzVision.az reports citing his statement at a meeting of the operational headquarters in Almaty city.

“I had negotiations with the leaders of the respective states. Taking this opportunity, I would like to express my gratitude to the command of the contingent for the work done during these several days,” Tokayev noted. “The presence of the CSTO peacekeeping contingent in Kazakhstan, including Almaty, played a very important role in terms of stabilization of the situation in our country,” he emphasized.

“Of course, this had great psychological importance for repelling the aggression of terrorists and bandits. The mission is assessed as very successful," concluded the president.
