«Our today’s meeting is symbolic. This year we mark the 25th anniversary of Kazakhstan’s accession to the Nuclear Weapons Non-Proliferation Treaty and the IAEA as well as the 10th anniversary of entry into force of the Central Asian Nuclear - Weapon - Free Zone (CANWFZ) treaty, » Tokayev said.

He reminded that Kazakhstan possessed huge nuclear arsenal in the past.

«You know that Kazakhstan was the world’s 4th largest nuclear country. But now, thanks to a wise policy of First President Nursultan Nazarbayev, we have turned into a leader of the global anti-nuclear movement. The road to this goal was an uneasy one. Our nation knows well about the consequences of arms races and military tests, since two-thirds of all nuclear tests in the USSR were conducted in our country, « the Head of State added.
