Tokayev and UN representative discuss pandemic-related issues and regional security

The approaches to ensuring regional security were considered in the context of the political situation in Afghanistan.

On July 9, President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev held talks with President of the UN General Assembly Volkan Bozkir. The interlocutors discussed the priority agenda of cooperation between the Republic and the international organisation, the press office of Akorda reported.

Joint approaches to addressing the threat of coronavirus and maintaining security in the region were put at the forefront. The Presdient of Kazakhstan said  the visit of the UN high-ranking official was of great importance in the context of the existing situation in Central Asia. He noted that the region was playing an increasingly important role in the global political spectrum with every passing year.

The President of Kazakhstan assured once again the guest that Kazakhstan would be committed to achieving the UN Goals, noting that the international community should synchronously move towards concerting efforts to combat the pandemic and responding to other challenges.

Volkan Bozkir highly evaluated Kazakhstan’s experience and fruitful activities on the common front of nations. He particularly mentioned the country’s efforts to find a solution to the Syrian conflict, more commonly known as the Astana process.

The talks focused on ensuring regional security in the context of the political situation in Afghanistan.
