Rome, July 31 - Italy's foreign minister refused to
meet with the ambassador of Kazakhstan Tuesday in a row over
pressuring Rome to expel the family of a Kazakh oligarch and
touted dissident.
"I don't find it opportune to receive him," said Emma
Bonino.
Andrian Yelemessov, who has returned to Italy from
vacation, had requested to meet with Bonino and other
politicians to discuss the scandal surrounding Alma Shalabayeva,
wife of Kazakh opposition figure Mukhtar Ablyazov, and their
six-year-old daughter, who were forcibly removed from Rome and
sent back to Kazakhstan at the end of May.
Bonino has threatened to expel the diplomat for allegedly
pressuring the interior ministry to deport them without going
through the proper channels at the foreign ministry.
In turn, Kazakhstan has warned it would retaliate.
