“Kazakhstan’s multivector diplomacy useful in disarmament, non-proliferation”

This article by The Korea Herald reviews the history of Kazakhstan and how it is using its seat – and current chairmanship – of the UN Security Council to advance a cause that has been at the core of the nation since its independence in 1991, namely nuclear non-proliferation and banning nuclear testing. During its first year of independence, Kazakhstan chose to close down the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site, an experiment ground for the Soviet Union’s atomic arsenal, which was the world’s fourth-largest at the time. This was a decision that “led nuclear powers to observe a moratorium on nuclear tests and adopt the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty”. Read the full article here.
