CSTO to leave Kazakhstan in 12 days: Tokayev

The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) military bloc will start withdrawing its troops from Kazakhstan within two days, Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev told parliament on Tuesday.

The troops will depart the Central Asian nation completely over a period of 10 days, he said.

Kazakhstan asked for CSTO military assistance amid violent unrest last week.
