It seems that despite all the cruel jibes he has made about the country, all is forgiven and Borat aka Sacha Baron Cohen has been invited to visit Kazakhstan by the country’s deputy foreign minister Rakhat Aliyev. In the character of Borat, Cohen jokes that in his country wooden carts are pulled by peasant women, they drink horse-urine and sing the folk song “Throw The Jew Down The Well”. Aliyev hopes that Sacha Baron Cohen’s visit, will help to change his views on the country and would like him to have a chance to see for himself that “women drive cars, wine is made of grapes, and Jews are free to go to synagogues". Deputy foreign minister Rakhat Aliyev told local news agency Kazakhstan Today, "I understand that the feelings of many people are hurt by Cohen's show. But we must have a sense of humour and respect the creative freedom of others."
