Government members and Deputies know the Kazakh language well – the Minister

According to the Minister of Information and Communication, the Parliament and Government are ready to fully switch the work to the Kazakh language.

Minister of Information and Communication Dauren Abayev gave comments on the meeting with the head of state, that has recently passer, as well as the switch of the work of the Government and Parliament into the official language, BNews.kz correspondent reports,

“The head of state noted that we would switch to the official language at meetings of the Parliament and Government. I think, that it concerns the knowledge of the official language by each official. The head of state meant that over 26 years of independence, the Government and Parliament should switch to the official language. That depends on the level of knowledge of the official language of each citizen of Kazakhstan,” the Minister said.

The Minister noted that the Government and Parliament are ready to switch their work to the Kazakh language.

“The President tells that we do not need to discriminate the Kazakh and Russian languages. This is the issue that will be gradually dealt with,” the Minister said.

The Minister to the question whether meetings will be held in Kazakh answered that in the case if officials could not report in the official language, he could report in Russia.

“That depends on the level of knowledge of the Kazakh language. If the people who want to express themselves in Russia and so not know the Kazakh language well, I think that it is better for them to use Russian. But I tell once again that members of the Parliament and Deputies know the Kazakh language well,” Dauren Abayev said.
