The Point: Kazakhstan turmoil

CGTN, 12 Jan 2022
Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev declared on Tuesday that military troops from the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) would withdraw in two days as a new prime minister is named. After over a week of raging violence in which over 160 people were killed, order is expected to be gradually restored in the country. But where does this escalated protest, or another "color revolution" attempt, leave the country? What lessons can be learned? China has on many occasions voiced support for Kazakhstan in maintaining stability and stopping the violence. Now with a new prime minister, how can the country resume its path for development? How can China help?
