Fresh from the inbox from USDA:

JOHANNS FURTHERS AGRICULTURAL COOPERATION WITH KAZAKHSTAN

WASHINGTON, June 27, 2007- Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns today met with Kazakhstan's Agriculture Minister Akhmetzhan Yesimov and agreed on specific areas of cooperation under the memorandum of understanding signed last September.

"Minister Yesimov and I are putting the agreement into action," said Johanns. "We have identified several significant activities that will foster the use of more advanced agricultural technologies, improve agricultural productivity and rural development, create opportunities for trade and investment and strengthen policy and regulatory frameworks. These efforts will help Kazakhstan succeed in becoming a market-driven economy."

No word on whether Borat was involved.
