Communist party sees no sense in renaming Kazakhstan just for tourists' sake

ASTANA. Feb 7 (Interfax-Kazakhstan) - The head of the National Communists parliamentary faction, a member of the Majilis Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defense and Security, Vladislav Kosarev sees no need in renaming Kazakhstan to Kazak Eli.

"I do not see an urgent need for that. Even if Kazakhstan is associated with the countries ending in "stan," such as Afghanistan and Pakistan, and it keeps away the tourists, I still do not see it as a strong argument to rename the country," he told Interfax- Kazakhstan on Friday.

The parliament member is confident that the referendum must be held on this issue.

On Thursday, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev proposed considering a possible renaming of Kazakhstan to Kazak Eli at the meeting with public in the Atyrau region. He suggested discussing it with the nation first.

Kazakhstan ends in "stan," as do other countries of Central Asia. According to the president, this ending does not sound welcoming to foreigners.
