The event was organized to celebrate the 16th anniversary since the shutdown of the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site.

In his opening remarks at the session President Nursultan Nazarbayev said that the shutdown of the Semipalatinsk test site strengthened Kazakhstan’s security, provided favourable conditions for the country’s development.

“Kazakhstan’s example is particularly timely and useful because today the global community is threatened with further proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, in particular by terrorist groups“, Nursultan Nazarbayev emphasized.

While in Kazakhstan’s capital, Astana, US representatives met with Secretary of State Kanat Saudabayev and Senate Chairman Kassym-Jomart Tokayev.

“We are fully aware of the Congress’ important role in the US political system. Today, when Kazakhstan enters a completely new stage in its development and starts its transformation into a presidential parliamentary republic, it is especially important to us to strengthen collaboration with the supreme legislative authority in the US,” Saudabayev said at the meeting.

In turn, Faleomavaega praised Kazakhstan’s progress in reforms saying that it clearly demonstrated the country’s leading position in the region.

“It is clear now that Kazakhstan builds a transparent legislative system which will let regulate the management process and help Kazakhstan set a model for other states of the region," a member of the visiting group, Republican Representative Chris Cannon told in Astana
