What Nazarbayev Said

Here is the promised update on the Kazakh State of the Nation adress. President Nazarbayev spoke of the need to develop, but protect Democracy (a thinly veiled threat to the opposition perhaps?). Other mentions went to the need for WTO accession, building of ties with Islamic nations, possible strengthening of Parliament's weak powers and to build Astana's reputation as the major City of Central Asia. Nothing spectacular.
