ALMATY, April 26 (Itar-Tass) – President of Kazakhstan has come out with an initiative to set up a United Nations international center in Almaty to support Afghanistan’s post-conflict development.
“Our proposal to set up a United Nations international centre in Almaty is still in force. Its activity will be geared first of all towards post-conflict rehabilitation of Afghanistan,” Nazarbayev said, addressing the third ministerial conference of the Istanbul Process on Afghanistan that opened here on Friday. According to the Kazakhs leader, this structure will coordinate financial and economic aid to Afghanistan via regional and sub-regional United Nations offices and other international organizations headquartered in Almaty.
“It will make it possible to efficiently implement multi-party cooperation programs in future. We suggest that Kazakhstan host bases for support and aid to Afghanistan,” he said. Almaty, in his words, is a big transport hub located close to Afghanistan.
