Deputy Prime Minister – Foreign Minister of Kazakhstan Mukhtar Tleuberdi considers it necessary to develop a phased plan for the complete elimination of nuclear weapons in all countries of the world, including in nuclear powers. The diplomat explained the need to ban nuclear weapons by today’s military conflict in Ukraine.

“We call on all states, including nuclear powers, to develop a phased plan for the complete elimination of nuclear weapons by 2045, the 100th anniversary of the UN. The current military conflict on the territory of Ukraine, talk about the return of nuclear weapons and mutual threats of the use of nuclear weapons make us, more than ever before, think about the collective vulnerability of humanity and the urgent need to ban and eliminate these deadly weapons,” wrote Mr. Tleuberdi in the author’s article for Kazakh and foreign media on the eve of the meeting of the states parties to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), which will be held June 21-23 in Vienna.

According to Mr. Tleuberdi, these proposals could be reflected in the final documents of both the first conference of the NPT and the review conference by the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). The diplomat is convinced that there are many political and technical obstacles on the way “to achieve this noble but ambitious goal”, so now it is necessary to start practical work in this direction.

He also noted the practical contribution of Kazakhstan to nuclear disarmament. Mukhtar Tleuberdi believes that this gives Kazakhstan the moral right to call on other countries to “double their efforts to rid our planet of the threat of nuclear self-destruction.” In this regard, Kazakhstan has decided to nominate its candidacy for the position of Deputy Chairman of the First Meeting of the NPT in 2022 and Chairman of the Third Meeting for the period 2024-2026, explained Mukhtar Tleuberdiodin.

The TPNW entered into force in January 2021. To date, the document has been signed by 86 states and ratified by 60 countries. However, the document was rejected by the nuclear powers: Russia, Great Britain, China, the USA and France. In the opinion of these states, the NPT document may further impede further progress in the field of disarmament. Kazakhstan is the only country in the CIS that has not joined the NPT.
