Kazakhstan in UN Security Council
Kazakhstan in the UN Security Council is solving the most acute issues on the international agenda. For example, the country intends to actively work on the restoration of peace in the Horn of Africa and across the continent. Famine in the southern Sudan is causing a particular concern. Internecine conflict of the local tribes caused the humanitarian disaster in the region. During the consultations of the Security Council Kazakhstan’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations urged the international organizations to ensure the unimpeded delivery of humanitarian assistance. According to the data, 40% of the population of South Sudan is suffering from hunger. Delegations agreed that the crisis in the country can be resolved only through a political settlement based on the full implementation of the agreement of 2015. Meanwhile, Kazakhstan’s experience is studied in Warsaw. Poland is going as Kazakhstan to participate in solving global issues. The country plans to become a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council in 2018-2019. With this aim Poland is required to get the support of 129 UN member states in the elections to be held in June.
