Finding ways to settle the situation in this country is one of the basic factors to ensure security on the southern frontiers of the CSTO. Kazakhstan aims at continuing the practical interaction with the Afghan leadership to deal with acute social and economic issues it faces. Humanitarian assistance is provided to Afghanistan," said the Kazakh Head of State.

The Kazakh President put forward a number of proposals to further promote interaction within the Organization. In particular, he named the promotion of CSTO’s peacekeeping capacity as the priority for the near future.
