The Head of State Nursultan Nazarbayev told the 5th Astana Economic Forum that Kazakhstan, one of the leaders of the non-proliferation movement, took on a part of responsibility for the fate of the Eurasian space.

Nursultan Nazarbayev especially emphasized that Kazakhstan had realized that it was a part of this world more than two decades ago by shutting down the Semipalatinsk Nuclear Test Site and abandoning its nuclear arsenal.

"Nowadays Kazakhstan is one of the leaders of the movement for nuclear free world. It is proved by Kazakhstani initiatives put forward at the 2012 Seoul Nuclear Security Summit. We have taken on a part of responsibility for the fate of our region, Eurasian space and the whole world. We do suggest and achieve the implementation of a number of regional and global initiatives," President Nazarbayev noted.

"Kazakhstan realizes that its prosperity and prosperity of other countries would be impossible outside stable and safe world," Nursultan Nazarbayev added.
