ASTANA (Interfax-Kazakhstan) — Turkey’s Interior Ministry has included 1,914 Kazakh citizens in the “non-entry” list over their links to international terrorism, according to a report published on the website of the ministry.

Turkey has put 53,781 foreign individuals on the no-entry list due to their affiliation with terrorist organizations and since they may cross the conflict zones. Among them are 1,914 Kazakhstanis, 4,128 citizens of Russia, 2,651 Tajikistanis, 1,677 individuals from Azerbaijan, 7,523 from Saudi Arabia, and 2,622 from France. Turkey has recognized DEASH as a terrorist organization back in 2013 upon the decision of the Council of the country’s Ministers.

It is reported that among other measures in its struggle against the spread of international terrorism Turkey has set up Risk Analysis Units, which focus on preventing people related with terrorist organizations from entering Turkey. Since its establishment in April 2014 the system checked 17,500 foreigners suspected in being affiliated with terrorist organizations and deported 4,550 of them.
