New York hosted a historic event combating terrorism initiated by Kazakhstan
New York hosted a historic event initiated by Kazakhstan. For the first time in the history of international cooperation, a coalition comprised of 70 different countries has emerged to combat terrorism. The Code of Conduct to achieve a terrorism-free world has been signed in the UN. In 2015, President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev announced the idea at the UN headquarters. This year, Kazakhstan’s counter-terrorism strategy was presented by Kazakh Foreign Minister Kairat Abdrakhmanov. The Code is a comprehensive document that outlines international commitments on combating terrorism. The leaders of delegations noted that the document’s adoption is an important step in strengthening international cooperation and the UN counter-terrorism efforts.
