The Ministry of Foreign Affairs launched a unique project called “Jas Diplomat”, with the participation of foreign diplomatic missions and schools in Astana. It was initiated by the Foreign Ministry with the support of the Ministry of Education and Science, Astana's Akimat and the Model UN Coordination Centre within the framework of the “Ruhani Zhangyru” Presidential Programme, reported the press centre of Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 

The implementation of the project entails cooperation between public schools in Astana and foreign diplomatic missions. In November and December, various educational events will be held to enable pupils from the city's schools to learn first-hand the intricacies of diplomacy. As a result, according to the authors, the schoolchildren will hold a simulated meeting based on the UN model under the theme “Future Energy”, representing the country of the diplomat they worked with.

In his welcoming speech, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan Roman Vassilenko thanked the foreign embassies and schools for agreeing to take part in the project, and noted that the project was intended to make a tangible contribution to developing a wider outlook and a healthy worldview of the younger generation.

“Our event is of particular importance and relevance on the eve of 2019, declared by the President as the 'Year of Youth' in a recent address to the people of Kazakhstan,” said Mr. Vassilenko.

Embassies of seven countries – Brazil, Germany, Georgia, Korea, Poland, Turkey and Japan – as well as seven capital gymnasium schools - No. 3, No. 4, No. 5, No. 6, No. 48, No. 75 and No. 81 - agreed to take part in this project.
