BERLIN, February 8 (Itar-Tass) — Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev, who began his official visit to Germany on Tuesday, called on the Western nations and the United States to start direct talks with Iran concerning its nuclear program.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the Berlin Eurasian Club at the German Council on Foreign Relations he reiterated that Kazakhstan voluntarily refused to have the fourth nuclear and missile potential in the world and the world community “recognizes the country’s efforts in ensuring global security.”
“During my meetings with Iran’s president, with whom I maintain good relations, I cited our country that renounced its nuclear arsenal as an example. I once again request the Iranian authorities to study Kazakhstan’s experience,” Nazarbayev said.
Taking part in the opening ceremony of the Berlin Eurasian Club were German and Kazakh politicians, business people and diplomats.
The club is Kazakhstan’s first project in Europe that provides a platform for discussing a wide range of social and political issues among Kazakhstan, Germany and the EU. Kazakhstan’s partner within the framework of this initiative was the Berthold Beitz Center at the German Council on Foreign Relations.
