India Kazakhstan Relations & Friendship
India is one such nation which has been carrying out a very positive image of being nonviolent and cooperative for peace process anywhere in the world. This always dates back to the India freedom struggle which always won laurels for being so determined yet non violent. That could be the reason why India reached out to Kazakhstan in the year 1992 to recognize its independence from the soviet. Not to forget that India took a very calculative risk in befriending Kazakhstan, knowing full well that the soviet will not be happy about the decision. India was a close ally to the soviet during the cold war and they must not have wanted to upset soviet, in spite of such pressure, India exercised its choice to support freedom and independence. The friendship was alive till the very recent affirmation of Kazakhstan’s support to India baking the permanent candidature in the United Nations Security Council in 2011.
