ASTANA -- A roundtable in Saryarka District, Astana, discussed the role of Kazakhstan's military veterans in fighting extremism and terrorism, the government-backed NGO Counter-Terrorism Committee of Kazakhstan said in a statement Monday (September 4).
"It's essential for veterans to organise wide-scale public events directed above all at fostering patriotism ... and developing immunity among youth to any form of aggression, including terrorism," said Aidar Abuov, director of the Astana-based International Centre of Cultures and Religions, during the conference.
The Astana Council of Veterans organised the meeting.
The project's goal is to provide surplus hydro-electric power from Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan to Afghanistan and Pakistan during the summer months.
