Nursultan Nazarbaev not to allow nationalization of Kazakhstan’s holiday hotels on the Coast of Issyk-Kul Lake
President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbaev called citizens for not reacting on statements of some Kyrgyz politicians about nationalization of Kazakhstan's holiday hotels on the Coast of Issyk-Kul Lake. Interfax-Kazakhstan reports referring to President's press-service.
"We cannot give way to such political statements. Let wait, time will pass, everything will settle and I think everything will remain flat. I believe neither Kazakhstan nor Kyrgyzstan will keep such tough relationships between states", President of Kazakhstan noted, news agency "24.kg" reported.
Last week Deputy Head of the interim government Azimbek Beknazarov had declared nationalization of four Kazakh holiday hotels on the Coast of Issyk-Kul Lake. His decision was motivated by his opinion that Kazakhstan had conducted unfriendly policy toward Kyrgyzstan in the ethnic conflict in the southern Kyrgyzstan.
Four holiday hotels were transferred into Kazakhstan's ownership in 2008. In 2009 Astana and Bishkek signed intergovernmental agreement on land lease for Kazakhstan where holiday hotels are situated.
