The Ministry of foreign affairs of Kazakhstan jointly with the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) organized a round table on "Afghanistan and the OSCE: creating opportunities for partnership and cooperation", press service of the ministry reports. 

High-ranking representatives of international and regional organizations, including the UN Secretary-General's Special Representative for Afghanistan and head of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan Tadamichi Yamamoto, Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Central Asia, the Head of the UN Regional Center for Preventive Diplomacy for Central Asia (UNRCCA) Natalia German, the heads of OSCE missions in Central Asia, as well as delegates from the EU, CICA, SCO, CARICC and UNHCR took part in the round table as keynote speakers.

In his welcoming speech, Minister of foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan Mukhtar Tleuberdi noted that the visit of such a representative OSCE delegation shows the interest of European partners in the consistent implementation of the results of the only Astana Summit in this century, held in 2010.

"The future of Central Asia is inextricably linked to the peaceful and sustainable development of Afghanistan. Kazakhstan continues to provide bilateral and multilateral support to the Afghan people in the reconstruction of their state. We believe that strong global and regional partnerships, long-term investments and regional connectivity are key to ensuring the peaceful future of this country," Tleuberdi said.

The foreign Minister stressed that assistance to Afghanistan is traditionally one of the key priorities of the country's foreign policy, including during the chairmanship of Kazakhstan in the OSCE, the Council of foreign Ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in 2011, as well as during the period of non-permanent membership in the UN Security Council in 2017-2018.

Participants of the meeting noted the importance of developing synergies between key international and regional organizations involved in the process of providing assistance to Afghanistan through the OSCE-SCO and OSCE-CICA to improve its effectiveness.

Thus, high representatives of the UN T. Yamamoto and N. German noted the significant contribution of Kazakhstan to the maintenance of peace and stability in Central Asia. As it was noted, during its membership in the UN security Council, our country demonstrated by personal example a practical contribution to raising the level of discussion of Afghan issues in the international community.

 

During their stay in Nur-Sultan and Almaty, the Permanent representatives were also received by the leadership of the Supreme court, the Minister of Information and Public development, the Commissioner for human rights in Kazakhstan and other state bodies and departments of Kazakhstan.

The program of the visit also included a visit to the international financial center "Astana" and the International center of green technologies
