Speaking at the 21st session of the Assembly of People of Kazakhstan late last week, President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev asserted a need for a profound change in the international law and transformation of the world order towards multipolarity, Tengrinews reports.

“I believe that the current global crisis will be overcome if profound changes occur in the international law, in the foreign policies,” Nazarbayev said. Even though there are international laws, in practice, it is the power of each individual nation that matters, he continued.

“The international law is being violated. It is a dangerous precedent. This is why our proposal of G-Global principles today are useful to the global community as never before,” Nazarbayev pointed out. He said that such principles should help the global community develop in a coherent rather than chaotic manner.

“The current situation in the global politics is a dramatic paradigm shift towards multipolar order. I talked about this for the first time in 2012, proposing the G-Global initiative,” the President said. Elaborating on the idea of G-Global he said that it represented a certain kind of a global council, which would be different from G-8 or G-20. Neither of the two organizations, in his view, offered any real solutions to the ongoing political crisis. Therefore, expanding the number of participating countries is called for by the need to find the solutions. The G-Global will include 160 countries, each of which will be able to express their opinions on different matters of vital importance.
