Kazakhstan supported reform of the United Nations

Kazakhstan supported reform of the United Nations. Foreign Minister Kairat Abdrakhmanov highlighted Astana’s position on reforming the UN at a meeting in New York. The meeting was called by the initiative of US President Donald Trump. Washington claims that the UN’s potential is not disclosed because of bureaucracy and wrong management. President Nursultan Nazarbayev announced that strengthening of the UN is one of seven priorities of Kazakhstan's work as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council. The Declaration on Reform of the United Nations corresponds to Kazakhstan’s basic approaches in this area. The document speaks about the need to strengthen partnership between the UN member countries as well as various measures to improve coordination between them. To quote the UN Secretary-General “We are reforming our peace and security architecture – to ensure we are stronger in prevention, more agile in mediation, and more effective and cost-effective in peacekeeping operations." In addition to Kazakhstan, another 140 countries supported the UN reform.


- Недавно меня спросили, что не дает мне покоя по ночам. Я ответил – бюрократия, разрозненность организационной структуры и волокита. Мы служим людям, которые страдают от нищеты, от изоляции, пострадали в результате вооруженных конфликтов. Эти люди мечтают, у них есть мысли, идеи, им нужна рука помощи. Наша реформа направлена на помощь и нужна всем.
