Kazakhstan, Astana, May 24 /Trend , A.Maratov/

Any country, including Kazakhstan, should not be afraid of terrorist threats from the Taliban, otherwise the world will become terrible, said U.S. Charge d'Affaires in Kazakhstan John Ordway.

Kazakhstan 's Parliament approved on first reading a bill that the country's troops possibly can take part in the actions of the coalition in Afghanistan. Some political analysts expressed concern that Kazakhstan should expect the response of the Taliban after the Parliament's decision.

"We know how many countries are involved now to resolve the situation in Afghanistan, so there is no need to be afraid of the threats", Ordway told Trend on Tuesday.

"I think that there is a certain risk for all countries involved in the fight against terrorism, regardless of whether they are directly involved in operations in Afghanistan or not. And I think we should all do everything we can to end terrorism throughout the world", Ordway told reporters earlier.

According to him, a relatively small number of Kazakh officers will work with coalition forces in Afghanistan on the staff level.

A car caught fire and exploded on Tuesday morning in front of the Kazakh National Security Committee's detention centre in Astana. The incident killed two people, Astana Interior Department's Press Secretary Oraz Nurdilda said at a press conference.

"The Astana Interior Department's Operation control center received information at 3.37 am on May 24 that a blast occurred near the house No.6 on the Shintas Lane," the Kazakh Interior Ministry reported.

"An investigative team revealed at the scene a car brand Audi-100 with the state number S 103 ТЕМ , dead bodies of two unidentified men of European appearance, driver's license and a hunting license belonging to 49-year old Kelplera Dmitriy, a native of the Kyrgyz Republic, passport belonging to 26-year old Ivan Cheremukhin, who was earlier convicted for theft and fraud, as well as cell Sony-Ericson," the report reads.

According to the preliminary version, two unidentified persons died as a result of spontaneous explosion of the uncovered explosives without hit filling (bolts, nails, screws, etc.).

Police reported that the inspection showed that the explosion occurred in a vehicle parked in a vacant lot, away from houses and production facilities. The blast shattered some windows of nearby buildings.

"These facts indicate the absence of signs of a terrorist act," the report indicated.
Investigation has been launched into the fact. A technical expertise of the explosion will be held.
