ANDREY BAKLITSKIY, EXPERT ON NUCLEAR NON-PROLIFERATION, PIR CENTER:
- Kazakhstan has managed to become an independent player in the field of international security. This accounts for the Astana Process on Syria, the Iranian Talks that took place in Kazakhstan at the time, the initiatives aimed at nuclear non-proliferation, where Kazakhstan renders a great support to the world community.
Tel Aviv closely monitors the process of settling the Syrian crisis. Israel sets hopes on the Astana Process, valuing Kazakhstan’s peacekeeping role and authority in the world arena.
ZEEV HANIN, POLITICAL SCIENTIST:
- Kazakhstan is located at the junction between Europe and Asia and belongs to both civilizations. It is a country located at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, the Islamic world and the Christian world. Kazakhstan is a partner of all who are interested in partnerships, and acts as a trustworthy mediator. Kazakhstan has already achieved much from this situation and can get even more.
