    These nations were all under Communist rule with repressive Central Administration. It's now about 20 years, since they have their independence. 20 years is in history only a second.
    These central Asian countries reside in a very hard to pentrate geography. It's in the middle of Eurasia, without any sea access and all those infrastructure network mainly was built and planned to connect it with Soviet Moscow and ensureing its total controll over it.

    It's moving in the right direction with such institutionalized frameworks that bring these countries one step closer together. Always one step before you make the 2nd step. And the most important is off course: No money, no honey. Particularily, Azerbaycan and Kazakhstan now had a decade of oil and natural gas sales behind them, and their pockets are relatively full with Kazakhstan the richest. It allows them to have ambitions which they did not have right after independence.

    P.S + EDIT:
    The headline of this thread was taken and slightly modified from Voice of Russia
