New York, 29 September 2021 (TDI): Kyrgyz Foreign Minister, Ruslan Kazakbaev spoke at the High-level Meeting on the occasion of the International Day for the Complete Elimination of Nuclear Weapons. This meeting took place within the framework of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

This Protocol guarantees, not to use nuclear weapons and not threaten to use them against the countries participating in the Central Asian nuclear-free zone.
