Kazakhstan is in favour of multilateral cooperation
Kazakhstan is in favour of multilateral cooperation. It allows the country to effectively respond to emerging challenges. Kazakh delegation proposed specific recommendations to strengthen multilateralism at the UN Security Council. As part of the initiatives introduced by China, which chairs the Council this month, a multilateral cooperation meeting was organized. Special attention was paid to group efforts in the fight against nuclear weapons as well as to activities of a new coalition of states, which was created based on Kazakhstan’s recommendations. The adopted Code of Conduct for a world free of terrorism was another example of the cooperation. While working in the UN Security Council, Kazakhstan also contributed to support the peacekeeping mission in Lebanon. Deputy Permanent Representative of Kazakhstan to the UN highlighted that during its work in the UN Security Council, the republic constantly sought to introduce the optimal multilateral approach, transparency, impartiality and partnership, which are the hallmarks of Kazakhstan’s foreign policy.
KANAT TUMYSH, DEPUTY PERMANENT REPRESENTATIVE OF KAZAKHSTAN TO UN:
- We need to reinforce the principles that governed international coexistence, namely global leadership, shared responsibility and collective action. Such challenges as protracted wars, unresolved conflicts, terrorism, extremism, poverty, disease, illicit migration, instability of humanitarian space and climate change are beyond the scope of any nation. These problems are underweighted by the unpredictable regional and global insecurity, the erosion of internationally legally binding norms, external interference, proxy wars and the threat of use of weapons of mass destruction. In this regard President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev in his Manifesto titled ‘Peace. The 21st Century’ has called on world leaders to jointly work towards a just economic and social order in the world and also appealed to end conflicts and terrorism, abolish WMD.
