"As you remember, recently we said that the process of return of Kazakhstani children from Iraq is underway. Their mothers were convicted there, they are serving sentence in prisons, and their children have to stay with them. Their relatives requested to return these children to Kazakhstan, the Foreign Ministry has taken every possible effort. Jointly with the Iraqi authorities we are preparing an operation for the children return to the motherland. I think this operation will be held during this month. I cannot say precisely the date. (...) More than 10 children will be returned," said Aibek Smadyarov, official representative of the Foreign Ministry of Kazakhstan.
