On 28 April, 2016, the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Kazakhstan to the United Nations organised a Photo Exhibition “Kazakhstan: Building a Nuclear Safe World” at the UN Headquarters, New York. The Photo Exhibition illustrates Kazakhstan’s pioneering efforts in the spheres of nuclear research, innovation, safety, industry and healing after the devastation caused by nuclear tests in its territory.
The display will demonstrate Kazakhstan’s forward-looking measures after it closed down the Semipalatinsk Nuclear Test Site, the second largest, and renounced its nuclear arsenal, the fourth largest in the world.
Today, it is setting the pace for nuclear responsibility through lessons learned and sharing of best practices regionally and globally.
In his welcoming remarks Ambassador Kairat Abdrakhmanov highlighted significant contribution Kazakhstan made to strengthen global nuclear security, a new document – “Manifesto: World. XXI Century”, which was introduced by the Delegation of Kazakhstan to the international community at the Global Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, on 1 April 2016.
