Nazarbayev supported Obama's anti-nuclear strategy

26 march 2012, 19:14
Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev talked about support of anti-nuclear strategy of the U.S. President Barack Obama, KazTAG reports.

"I fully support your call to all nations and peoples for the nuclear-free world," Nazarbayev told Barack Obama at the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul.

He also noted that he supportes Obama's anti-nuclear strategy that provides that military actions with the use of nuclear weapons cannot be used against the countries that join the non-proliferation treaty.

"This inspires everyone," Nazarbayev said noting that Kazakhstan made a contribution to this effort. In particulat, Kazakhstan closed the nuclear test site in Semipalatinsk and gave up the nuclear arsenal that included 1,100 nuclear warheads.

The President also stressed that the United States and Russia jointly performed a huge work dismantling the nuclear site's infrastructure and nuclear units, which is very important for Kazakhstan citizens who fell victims of the nuclear tests.

"We achieved the strategic partnership thanks to that. The U.S. invested $20 billion in Kazakhstan. This is 80 percent of all the investments into Central Asia. I think that this is a role model worth following. I always talk about it and call the countries striving for nuclear weapons to follow Kazakhstan's example for the benefit of their people," Nazarbayev said.

"We hope for further enhancement of the economic and political cooperation between our countries," he added. Nazarbayev also thanked Obama for his invitation to Washington and Seoul anti-nuclear summits.

The Nuclear Security Summit is held in Seoul on March 26-27. The participants will discuss physical and technical protection, security of nuclear energy facilities and radioactive materials. The summit will be attended by presidents of 53 countries and 4 international organizations.
