After the contretemps between Borat and the Kazahkstan ambassador to the UK it is refreshing to hear about the real Kazakhstan. Here is an interview between “Kazakhstan Today” and the First Vice Foreign Minister of Kazakhstan on the subject of Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat).
Cohen himself has never visited Kazakhstan and I would like to invite him into our country. He could make a lot of discoveries here: that our women are not only riding buses, but they are also driving their own cars, that we produce wine from grape, that local Jews can freely go to Synagogues, and so on.
said the minister.
