Nazarbayev is an outspoken advocate of Pan-Turkist ideology

Nazarbayev’s statement was expected, political analyst Levon Melik-Shahnazaryan said, commenting on the precondition Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev at the Astana-hosted meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council where it was suggested that Armenia establish a customs border with Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR) to join the Eurasian Economic Union.

The political analyst says this is not the first time Nazarbayev speaks about the precondition and he wants everyone to know that Kazakhstan President is an outspoken advocate of Pan-Turkist ideology although he tries to conceal it.

“Aliyev had addressed his letter to three presidents – Nursultan Nazarbayev, Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenko and Nazarbaev made the statement in reply to Aliyev. He had two reasosn for it: first Kazakhstan was a host country where the meeting was being held, second, he is in the same team with Aliyev.

“Nazarbayev wanted Aliyev to understand that he did what Aliyev expected him to do, everything else was not his business,” said Levon Melik-Shahnazaryan.
