Azerbaijan, Baku, Aug. 17 / Trend E. Kosolapova /
The U.S. shares the Kazakh authorities' concern about terrorist attacks committed in the country recently, Assistant Secretary of State Robert Blake said at press briefing in Almaty, U.S. state department said.
"I wouldn't say we are concerned about political stability [in Kazakhstan]. I would say we share the concern of the local authorities about these attacks. It underlines again the importance of the counter-terrorism cooperation that we have with our friends in Kazakhstan," Blake said.
Meanwhile, Blake said Kazakh authorities do everything they can to respond to the needs and grievances of Kazakhstani citizens and not allow these grievances to go unaddressed and perhaps give rise to terrorism or violent confrontation as opposed to peaceful means of resolving disputes.
A series of terrorist attacks, explosions and attacks on police officers has taken took place in Kazakhstan since late 2011.
