ASTANA, February 8 (Itar-Tass) — The United States expressed its gratitude for Kazakhstan’s participation in searching for a peaceful solution to Iran’s nuclear problem, U.S. Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Kazakhstan Kenneth Fairfax said.
Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Fairfax said that all countries throughout the world should voice their concern over the situation in Iran.
If Iran succeeds in making nuclear arms, the effects will be felt worldwide, the ambassador said, adding that the United States was very grateful for the involvement of Kazakhstan and other countries in searching for ways to solve the problem by peaceful means.
Kazakhstani President Nursultan Nazarbayev, who is currently in Germany, said the Western countries, as well as the United States, should start direct talks with Iran on its nuclear program.
Opening the Berlin Eurasian Club at the German Council for Foreign Relations, Nazarbayev said, “I maintained good contacts with the Iranian president. Recently I told him about our example, about our refusal to build nuclear weapons. I call on the Iranian leadership once again to watch Kazakhstan’s experience.”
He recalled that Kazakhstan deliberately gave up its nuclear missile arsenals. “The international community recognises the country’s contribution to ensuring global security,” Nazarbayev said.
The U.S. ambassador supported Kazakhstan’s initiative on deploying nuclear fuel on its territory. He said that the international community approved this proposal.
