Samat Ordabayev, the Kazakh ambassador in Ukraine has been summoned to the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine. The diplomatic authority expressed concern about Kazakhstan's position on Russia's illegal annexation of Crimea in spring 2014.
The press office of the Foreign Ministry reported that on Facebook.
Both sides have confirmed that they remain committed to principles of mutual respect of independence, state sovereignty, territorial integrity and inviolability of borders. These principles are stated in the 1994 Agreement on Friendship and Cooperation between Ukraine and Kazakhstan.
Earlier, Kazakh leader Kasym-Jomart Tokayev said he did not consider the events of February and March 2014 annexation of Ukraine's peninsula. Ukraine's Foreign Ministry claimed that the Kazakh side will face respective demarches due to the statements that contradict the internationally recognized politics.
