United Nations

Kazakhstan is a participatory member of the United Nations, and fully supportive of the three main pillars of the United Nations - international peace and security, human well-being and humanitarian action, and sustainable development. 

The Preamble to the Charter spells out that the United Nations was founded “to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war”. Kazakhstan is uniquely positioned to carry out this charter because of direct experiences in nuclear disarmament and nuclear non-proliferation, protecting economic and social rights. Kazakhstan shares the imperative to make the Earth habitable for future generations free of conflicts stemming from food, water and energy crises. 

Kazakhstan is transforming the city of Almaty into a sub-regional multilateral diplomacy and humanitarian hub with focus to enhance United Nations operations in the region and beyond.
