Kazakhstan to Raise Central Asian Issues at UN Security Council

ASTANA – Kazakhstan will focus part of its mandate as a non-permanent UN Security Council member on Central Asia’s most urgent problems, Kazakh Deputy Foreign Minister Yerzhan Ashikbayev said Wednesday.

“Our country will raise the most relevant issues not only for Kazakhstan, but also for the entire region,” Ashikbayev said in a press conference in Astana.

The Kazakh diplomat discussed the visits of former Foreign Minister Erlan Idrissov to Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan to develop strategies to put the region on the international map.

“Idrissov, at a ministerial level, met with heads of state to debate how to attract the attention of the international community to develop mechanisms for regional cooperation,” Ashikbayev said.

On Tuesday, Kazakhstan presented a plan for a regional model for peace, security, cooperation and development in Central Asia in the first major debate held this year at the UN Security Council, making it a priority for the next two years.

In addition, Kazakhstan emphasized the need to achieve a world free of nuclear weapons, prevent armed conflicts, fight global terrorism, bring peace to Africa and improve cooperation among regional security organizations.
