According to the Constitution, the dismissal of the prime minister is followed by the resignation of the entire government.
Kazakhstan's Prime Minister Serik Akhmetov and his entire government resigned Wednesday, the authorities in the Central Asian country said.
Akhmetov told a cabinet meeting that his resignation had been granted by President Nursultan Nazarbayev, the government of the oil-exporting country said.
No reason was given for Akhmetov's abrupt dismissal, but President Nazarbayev has broad powers to change prime ministers at his choosing.
In an addition to his public schedule, Obama sat down with Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev in a long room at the U.S. embassy, with the two countries' flags set up behind them. U.S. officials offered no details about the meeting's agenda, but Nazarbayev is part of a Russia-centered economic bloc focused on Eurasia.
President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin have discussed priorities of bilateral cooperation over the phone, Tengrinews reports citing the presidential website.
"Nursultan Nazarbayev and Vladimir Putin have a complete mutual understanding on all the aspects of the bilateral cooperation," the presidential press-service said.
Besides the bilateral cooperation priorities they talked about expanding trade, and improvement of their joint efforts in the Eurasian space, in particular their preparations for the meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council.
They exchanged opinions of the results of the recent Nuclear Security Summit in the Hague that President Nazarbayev attended.
What I find amazing is that this country followed their constitutional laws...
