Kazakh President’s political address receives UN Security Council’s official document status
The Kazakh President’s political address to the UN Security Council received the status of an official document. The Secretariat of the international organization numbered the address and distributed among all member states, countries and observer organizations. Nursultan Nazarbayev’s address to the UN Security Council after Kazakhstan’s assuming the post as a non-permanent member of the Security Council was made during the speech of the Kazakh Minister of Foreign Affairs Kairat Abdrakhmanov at the open debate, which was held with the participation of the new UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres. The address was in unison with the preventive diplomacy theme discussed this time by the international community. The Kazakh President’s appeal to unite efforts and promote cooperation in strengthening of international peace and security was particularly important in this context. And, according to the Kazakh experts, this political appeal is a logical continuation of Nursultan Nazarbayev’s manifesto “The World. 21st century”. The document clearly reflects the Kazakh President’s vision to a further construction of a safe, just and prosperous world.
SANAT KUSHKUMBAYEV, DEPUTY DIRECTOR, KAZAKHSTAN INSTITUTE FOR STRATEGIC STUDIES:
Some of the problems that were voiced reflect the issues of international peace, security, sustainable development. They are always on the agenda. Solving these issues, we thereby strengthen our positions both economically and politically and in a social context.
Nursultan Nazarbayev’s political address that outlined Kazakhstan’s priorities as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council has received good reviews from foreign experts. According to political analysts, Kazakhstan is acting for the benefit of the whole world. Experts consider particularly important the initiative to establish a broad coalition against global terrorism.
SERGEY REKEDA, DIRECTOR GENERAL, INFORMATION-ANALYTICAL CENTER, MOSCOW STATE UNIVERSITY:
One of Kazakhstan’s most interesting proposals is the idea of a Code of rules for anti-terrorist operations. This is relevant not only for Syria, but also for domestic policies of Kazakhstan, Russia, and Europe.
