Kazakhstan warns of retaliation if Rome ambassador expelled


Brussels, July 24 – Kazakhstan on Wednesday warned
that it will retaliate if its ambassador to Rome is expelled
over the pressure he allegedly exerted pressure at the interior
ministry for the expulsion from Italy of a dissident's family.
"Let's see what happens," Deputy Premier Yerbol Orynbayev
said in Brussels during a news conference.
But, he added, "if there is an official decision (in Rome),
Kazakhstan will react".
There have been suggestions that the Italian government
could expel Andrian Yelemessov for behaviour that Premier Enrico
Letta has described as "unheard-of".
Alma Shalabayeva, wife of Kazakh oligarch and touted
dissident Mukhtar Ablyazov, and their six-year-old daughter were
forcibly removed from Rome and sent back to Kazakhstan in May.
A major scandal has erupted in Rome around the case.
Orynbayev also denied the situation has made the Kazakh
ambassador to Italy "useless".
Foreign Minister Emma Bonino had suggestion that the
controversy has rendered the Kazakh ambassador useless to assist
his country in Italy.
