COOPERATION BETWEEN UNITED NATIONS AND KAZAKHSTAN
Kazakhstan continues to cooperate productively with the United Nations Secretariat although it has completed its term as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council. The country’s activities over the last two years were effective. It chaired several sanctions committees of the UN Security Council. Foreign experts emphasize Kazakhstan’s achievements in the international council. Coordinator of UN monitoring team, Edward Fitton-Brown believes that Kazakhstan has made a great contribution to the settlement of conflicts in the Middle East and Afghanistan.
EDMUND FITTON-BROWN, COORDINATOR, UNITED NATIONS MONITORING TEAM:
- We have had an outstanding partnership with Kazakhstan which has been very dynamic in its approach on both counter-terrorism and on the stabilization of Afghanistan. Obviously, you have a great deal of expertise in these fields and you’re playing an increasingly important key role in the stabilization of Afghanistan and in holding out to the Afghans the prospect of the future bound up with Central Asia. So, these have been two excellent years of working with your officials, with your permanent representative here.
