Amid mass protests in Kazakhstan, the German government has called on all parties in the country to exercise restraint and prudence.
The statement came from Christian Hoffmann, deputy spokesman for the German government, the report said.
He said Berlin was deeply concerned about the violence. “We are convinced that violence can never be an adequate response,” he said. Therefore, we call on all parties to reduce tensions and resolve the situation peacefully. “
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany has announced that it will carefully study all reports on the order to open fire on security forces and the army in Kazakhstan without warning.
“From the point of view of the German government, it should be made clear that the use of military weapons against the civilian population, especially with the participation of the armed forces, should be the last resort.”
It was noted that the Kazakh government and all high-ranking officials are responsible for the protection of civilians.
“Anyone who fires on protesters to kill without warning has left the League of Civilized States,” said Marco Bushman, Germany’s justice minister.
European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and French President Emmanuel Macron, who met in Paris on the sidelines of France’s presidency of the Council of the European Union, also called for an end to the violence in Kazakhstan.
