REF: STATE 76294 
 
(SBU)  We delivered reftel points to MFA's Acting Director of 
OSCE Department Maksim Sholin.  Sholin thanked us for the 
advance points on the OSCE Human Dimension meeting. 
Kazakhstan will be represented at the meeting at the 
appropriately high level, he said, although the final 
decision on representation has not yet been made.  In 
response to the individual points raised, Sholin said that 
the GOK was working on fulfilling the Madrid commitments, and 
he expects draft laws on elections, media, and political 
parties to go to Parliament in the Fall.  He reiterated the 
GOK's commitment to maintaining ODIHR's mandate intact and 
said he will pass our concern about lack of verbal support to 
FM Tazhin.  On the pending religion law, Sholin said that 
OSCE's religious freedom expert held several meetings with 
the government in June, and he expects that the draft 
legislation will reflect OSCE's recommendations.
