ALMATY -- The Berkut training centre for special forces opened recently in Zarechnyi village, Almaty Province, Kazakhstan Today reported December 28.
The centre has capacity to train 500 troops simultaneously. Various Kazakhstani special forces already are undergoing training there. Kazakhstan plans to instruct forces from various countries like Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan there as well.
The military created the training centre as part of the government's 2014-2016 counter-terrorism programme.
Militants who regard Afghanistan and Pakistan as 'Khorasan Province' in their idea of a caliphate could move the theatre of war from the Middle East to Central Asia, observers warn.
