A day after the arrest of two Kazak nationals for allegedly taking evidence related to the Boston Marathon bombings, the country issued a statement and said it condemns "any form of terrorism."
The statement was posted Thursday on the website of Kazakhstan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov were charged Wednesday with obstruction of justice for taking a backpack and computer from accused Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's UMass Dartmouth dorm room after the blasts.
The country, in its statement, said it wanted to emphasize that its citizens were not charged with being involved in the actual bombings.
