Opening the meeting, Nursultan Nazarbayev expressed condolences to the families of the victims of the events in Kordai and wished a speedy recovery to all the victims.

– The current situation is very disturbing. Together with our people, we have gone through a lot of difficulties over these 30 years. Young people can't even imagine these problems. In Kazakhstan, 130 enterprises suspended their activities, 2.5 million people were left without work and earnings, there was no heat in their homes, there was a shortage of food. We went through all this together," Elbasy said.

The President of the Security Council recalled that Kazakhstan experienced great difficulties in the social and economic spheres after gaining independence.

– If we could not unite our multi-ethnic people and ensure stability, foreign investments would not come to our country today, and the economy would not work. Of course, the state leaders have set appropriate tasks, but the preservation of peace and harmony is, first of all, the responsibility of our people," Nursultan Nazarbayev said.

At the same time, Elbasy instructed to carefully study the causes of the situation and punish those responsible by the law.

– This problem should concern the older generation. My goal as the Leader of the nation is to raise Kazakhstan to a level that the future generation will be proud of. The mission of the older generation is to explain to people that our common goal is to preserve an independent, developed and stable state," The President of the Security Council said.

Special attention was also paid to the quality of work of local Executive and law enforcement agencies, the Assembly of People of Kazakhstan and its regional branches.

– The Assembly and its regional offices should work ahead of the curve and keep such situations under control. This is our common task, " the First President of Kazakhstan said.

During the meeting, detailed reports were heard by akim of Jambyl region B. Saparbayev, Minister of internal Affairs E. Turgumbayev.

As part of the discussion of the first issue, the Central state and local Executive bodies were given instructions for further implementation of programs aimed at solving social and economic problems in the regions of the country, including in the areas of employment and infrastructure development, as well as reconstruction and construction of social facilities.

Minister of healthcare E. Birtanov made a report on the second issue of the meeting's agenda.

The President of the Security Council noted that the situation around the coronavirus can affect negatively both the economy of China and the economy of Kazakhstan.

- We should not sit idly by. We need to be ready for everything, to provide stocks of medicines and other necessary resources. This issue should be monitored. In such cases, we must provide countermeasures, including to prevent the negative impact of external factors on the national economy, " Nursultan Nazarbayev said.
