Kazakhstan comes in from the cold, takes trip to Nairobi

Borat gives the thumbs-up
to this exciting news
The IPKat is greatly excited by today's breaking news that the Republic of Kazakhstan is preparing to host the Olympic Games. Well, perhaps not just yet, but it appears from Nairobi Notification No. 55 (Nairobi Treaty on the Protection of the Olympic Symbol) that, on 9 February Kazakhstan deposited its instrument of accession to the Nairobi Treaty on the Protection of the Olympic Symbol which will enter into force there on 9 March -- just a couple of short weeks away.
