Geneva. March 5. Kazakhstan Today - It is necessary to begin negotiations on development of the contract on prohibition of manufacture of decomposing materials. The Minister for Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan Marat Tazhin informed at the Geneva plenary session of the Disarmament session.
"The initiative to begin negotiations on development of the contract on prohibition of manufacture of decomposing materials is well-timed. We hope that in the further it could become stimulus for further step towards nuclear disarmament," he said.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan considers "it is impossible to underestimate three other key issues: nuclear disarmament, prevention of arms race in outer space, granting negative guarantees of safety."
"We highly estimate efforts of Russia and China on development of the bill on prevention of race of arms in outer space," M. Tazhin emphasized. He reminded that Kazakhstan has repeatedly put forward proposals on development of internationally committed document on non-use of threat of use of nuclear weapons by the nuclear states against non-nuclear. "We are interested in continuation of the discussion on negative guarantees of safety as it is closely connected with the process of nuclear disarmament. We firmly trust that non-nuclear members of Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons have the legitimate right for negative guarantees of safety," the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan noted.
