    TEHRAN - After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Central Asia has been cast as the site of a new "great game". Central Asia has been largely influenced by international developments and the emergence of persistent sources of instability and tension in other parts of the world, including the Middle East and North Africa.

Although Kazakhstan has succeeded in this path, most of the countries in the region face major challenges.
