Kazakhstan pursues diversification agenda

David Cameron arrived in Kazakhstan on June 30 on the first ever trip by a serving British prime minister, hoping to boost trade ties but also promising to raise human rights concerns. Cameron is leading a large business delegation to the mineral-rich Central Asian nation and hopes to sign trade deals worth more than £700 million ($1.06 billion, 820 million euros).
