“There are about 60-70,000 tourists from Kazakhstan visiting Phuket annually now. Kazakhstan is a country not connected with the sea.

May I suggest the Governor checks his info before he opens his mouth. Kazahkstans western border is along the Caspian Sea.......

Probably the Governor (or more likely his aides) did check, or he wouldn't make this specific comment.

It is commonly accepted that Kazakhstan is a landlocked country (see e.g. Wikipedia, or their very own Kazakhstan Encyclopedia), and the Caspian Sea is variously classified as a lake or sea. As a sea, it certainly is one of a kind.
