Statement by the Head of State on the completion of the humanitarian operation to evacuate the citizens of Kazakhstan from Syria was published on the official website of Akorda.

Jan. 6, 2019, as a result of a humanitarian operation carried out by our law enforcement agencies and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 47 citizens of Kazakhstan including 30 children, were evacuated from Syria. They were fraudulently taken to this country where they were held hostage by terrorists. Upon arrival in Kazakhstan, women and children were given all possible assistance from the state. These innocent people who found themselves in such a difficult situation were immensely glad for their salvation. Within a month they will undergo an adaptation period and receive necessary medical care. The efforts made will help prevent such incidents.

Kazakhstan always supports its citizens, regardless of their location. Our main task is to ensure security, protect the integrity and unity of the country. We will continue to work on returning the children who are in the combat zone against their will.
