Kazakhstan is closely following the developments in Afghanistan.
The country is experiencing another crucial moment in its history. The long-standing conflict should be resolved by the Afghan people themselves.
Kazakhstan calls on all parties involved to ensure the peaceful transition of power as the main prerequisite for internal stability. We support the statement of the UN Security Council on the creation of an inclusive and representative government, respect for the rights of national minorities and women, preventing the presence of groups that pose a threat to other states, and compliance with international law.
The implementation of these provisions should become a necessary condition for starting a dialogue with the new government of Afghanistan.
