Kazakhstan will Continue its Cooperation with OSCE
Kazakhstan will continue cooperating with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
The announcement was made following the country’s interim president Qasym-Jomart Toqayev’s meeting with the OSCE Chairman-in-Office Miroslav Lajčák.
Lajčák, who is also the Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of Slovakia, said that the organization supports Kazakhstan’s active and constructive role in Central Asia.
“Kazakhstan has successfully chaired the OSCE in 2010. The summit that was organized at that time is still considered as the only meeting of the highest level as part of the OSCE in the 21st century.”
“The adopted agreements back then have not lost their relevance and importance to date,” Lajčák said.
The Minister and Toqayev discussed the goals of OSCE, which include preventing conflicts, ensuring security and effective multilateral cooperation and emphasizing the role of Kazakhstan in regulation of international crises.
