The US Secretary of State Antony Blinken visited Kazakhstan on Tuesday for a series of meeting with top leaders of Central Asian countries to strengthen US-Central Asian ties.

Blinken vowed US support to protect the independence of the five Central Asian countries, which Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has rattled.

Blinken stated that no country, especially those historically in Moscow’s sphere of influence, can afford to ignore the threats posed by Russian aggression to their territory, the rule-based international order, and the global economy. 

Moreover, he emphasized the significance of respecting “sovereignty, territorial integrity, and independence” throughout his conversation.

 The president of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, who met with Blinken on Tuesday in Astana, said that we have “established outstanding and reliable long-term partnerships in so many strategically critical areas, like security, energy, trade, and investments.”

Blinken, after he meets with Central Asian leaders, will also be supposed to participate in the G20 summit in India this week.
