Summary

On 26-27 October in Saryagash, near the border with Uzbekistan, the Office in Astana, jointly with the Border Service of the National Security Committee and the United States Embassy in Astana, co-organised a two-day training seminar on the use of density metres for inspecting vehicles entering Kazakhstan.

Some 30 border service officers from different crossing points learned how to apply density metres in order to identify hidden compartments in vehicles possibly used to smuggle contraband.

A trainer from the US Embassy shared her knowledge and experience on device application and maintenance.
