USA approves Kazakhstan's wish to chair OSCE in 2009
(gazeta.kz) - The USA approves an interest of Kazakhstan in chairing the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) in 2009. John Ordway, US ambassador to Kazakhstan, made such statement at a press conference Wednesday responding to questions from journalists, Kazakhstan Today correspondent reports.
"That issue was discussed and we said what we used to say before: we are happy that Kazakhstan is interested in that position. Any leader of a country chairing the OSCE must share values of this organisation," US diplomat said expressing a hope that "Kazakhstan will clearly show its attitude towards this issue before this decision is passed late next year."
