"Kazakhstan will not participate in the training", an unnamed source in the Ministry of defense of Kazakhstan said - RIA Novosti.


Previously Kazakhstan was included in the list of participants of the Cooperative Longbow 09/Cooperative Lancer 09 multinational maneuvers under the aegis of NATO. According to previous messages, the exercises are of military staff character and will be held without weapons and military machinery.

Dmitri Medvedev, the President of Russia expressed his negative attitude to the coming drills, as, in his view, NATO's decision to hold the maneuvers in Georgia doesn't favour the approximation with Russia and threatens complications.

Lieutenant General Alexander Sinayskiy, the head of the council of Ministers of Defense of CIS participant countries said he regards NATO maneuvers in Georgia a "political démarche" of the Alliance.
