By bne IntelliNews January 11, 2013
Kazakhstan plans to train terror negotiation experts in its efforts to fight with Islamic radicalism. The issue was raised during the Preventing Crimes and Violations of the Law conference, which took place in the Senate at the end of the year. The National Security Committee (KNB) considers that a school to train negotiators in order to strengthen security. The KNB already sent some of its officers to the National Academy of the Ukrainian Security Service and to the State Security Committee in Belarus. Some other are trained in Turkey and great Britain while Germany and France held workshops in Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan has also recently amended the law regarding terrorism, i.e. provided a new and clear definition of terrorism. Kazakhstan has been facing terrorism threats since May 2011. The authorities are afraid that pullout of the NATO forces from Afghanistan in 2014 will worsen the situation.
