  • Erlan Abilfayizovich Idrissov (Kazakh: Erlan Ábilfaıyzuly Ydyrysov, [jɪrˈlɑn æbɪlfɑjˌəzʊˈlə ədərˈəsof] ; born April 28, 1959, in Karkaraly, Karaganda oblast, Kazakhstan) was the Foreign Minister of the Republic of Kazakhstan 1999 to 2002 and 2012 to 2016. He previously served as Foreign Minister in the Government of Kazakhstan from 1999−2002. In June 2002 his Foreign Ministership ended. He became the Kazakh ambassador to the United Kingdom. After serving in London, Idrissov assumed the role of Ambassador to the United States in July 2007. The Ambassador has been quoted in the past as being opposed to the film Borat, but has seemed to take a softer approach to the film more recently. In September 2012, Idrissov was appointed Foreign Minister of Kazakhstan after serving as the Ambassador to the United States until October 2012. In February, 2017, Erlan Idrissov was appointed Ambassador of Kazakhstan to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. On December 28, he was dismissed as foreign minister. The appointment is widely viewed by western analysts as a sign of Nazarbayev’s intent to maintain strong relations with the west. As Foreign Minister, Idrissov has sought to improve relations with states in the South and Central Asia region. During a March 2013 visit to Tajikistan, Idrissov met with President Emomali Rahmon and Foreign Minister Hamrokhon Zarifi and signed a “Program of Cooperation” that reaffirmed bilateral commitment to cooperation in the areas of energy, migration, political and water issues. Idrissov chaired the February and April meetings in Almaty of the P5+1 talks with Iran over the country’s nuclear program, embodying Kazakhstan’s multi-vector foreign policy and desire to act as a mediator in regional disputes, as it did during the 2010 conflict in Kyrgyzstan and is now attempting to do with respect to the development of hydropower resources in Tajikistan. Idrissov visited the offices of the European Commission in Brussels in January 2013, as well as with NATO Secretary general Anders Fogs Rasmussen at the organization’s headquarters in Brussels to discuss key issues regarding security and the withdrawal of international forces from Afghanistan. During the first few months of 2013, Idrissov met with leaders in Europe, opening a new Embassy of Kazakhstan in Finland and announcing plans for a diplomatic presence in Sweden in 2013. (en)
