Kazakhstan’s initiatives are relevant and correspond to modern challenges, the UN permanent representatives, including those from the Middle East, say. According to them, President Nazarbayev’s policy address to the UN Security Council calls for global partnership to build a safe, democratic and prosperous world. Heads of Diplomatic missions paid particular attention to the idea on development of Astana Code of Conduct in International Anti-Terrorist Operations, which may become a base for formation of the Global Antiterrorist Coalition under the UN auspices. They also say that the donation of 1% of the UN member states’ defense budget for the Sustainable Development agenda will allow maintaining world peace.
