12.11.2019 | Nursultan Nazarbayev voiced global problems, undermining stability in the world

What is the current reality of Greater Eurasia? How to prevent the implementation of negative scenarios for the development of geopolitical events? What hinders the strengthening of cooperation between countries? These and many other issues are discussed on the sidelines of the Astana club.

Throughout the five years of the annual holding of this international dialogue platform, the interest of world politicians in the Astana club has remained high. After all, it discusses the pressing issues of our time, ways to solve global problems.

We are worried about the situation in the global economy, which is increasingly showing signs of an impending crisis. Amid growing trade contradictions and geopolitical instability in the world, global institutions give disappointing forecasts. Slowing global growth has a negative effect on world trade. All these factors undermine world stability, noted the First President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev at the 5th meeting of the Astana club.

Elbasy voiced other global problems. These are sanctions and trade wars between the powers, the process of uncontrolled militarization throughout Eurasia, the erosion of existing nuclear disarmament agreements.

Nursultan Nazarbayev noted that as the Honorary Chairman of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council, he is ready to provide comprehensive support for the implementation of the EU – Eurasian Economic Union Partnership Dialogue Mechanism.

The First President of Kazakhstan emphasized that in order to resolve the existing difficult contradictions between states, political and economic problems, countries need to «think with broader»  «Eurasian categories». «This is the only way we can realize the huge potential that the Eurasian «supercontinent»  possesses. And I am pleased to note that it is our Club that acts today as the ideological platform for a new geopolitical construction called «Greater Eurasia», said Elbasy.
