Security Without Nuclear Weapons Is Not a Utopian Dream by Erlan Idrissov
August 29, 2013
August 29 marks the UN International Day Against Nuclear Tests and is a timely reminder of the need to maintain international efforts to continue nuclear disarmament. The ultimate goal of this process should be to rid the world of its Cold War legacy of nuclear weapons and the outdated psychology of nuclear deterrence that underpins their continuing existence.
This is part of a vicious circle that makes countries with nuclear weapons want to hold on to them and, in some cases, motivates those without them to want to become nuclear powers.

Астана – Қазақстанның ұлы дәуірі және стратегиялық векторы
Қазақстан Республикасының Президенті
АСТАНА – ҚАЗАҚСТАННЫҢ ҰЛЫ ДӘУІРІ ЖӘНЕ СТРАТЕГИЯЛЫҚ ВЕКТОРЫ
Осыдан 15 жыл бұрын Қазақстан Республикасының жаңа елордасы Астана бүкіл әлемге салтанатты түрде таныстырылған болатын. Сол уақытқа дейін елорданы ауыстыру туралы идея тұжырымдамалық тұрғыдан ой елегінен өткізіліп, мәселе шешілген, орталық мемлекеттік органдарды қабылдап, орналастыру бойынша қажетті дайындық жұмыстары жүргізілген және оларды Алматыдан ұйымдасқан түрде көшіру жүзеге асырылған күрделі де драмаға толы жылдар артта қалған еді. Енді, міне, 15 жыл бойы біз шын мәнінде еліміз тарихының АСТАНАНЫҢ ҰЛЫ ДӘУІРІ деп атауға толық құқымыз бар жаңа кезеңінің есебі жүріп жатыр…
Ақорда резиденциясындағы менің жұмыс кабинетімнен біздің жаңа елордамыздың жүрек толқытар панорамасы көрініс береді. Көптеген кездесулерден, кеңестерден және құжаттармен жұмыстан тұратын тығыз жұмыс кестемде бос минут пайда болған сәтте мен қайта-қайта терезеге қараймын.
Мен кең дала төсімен есіле ағып жатқан Есілдің бүлкілсіз суы бетіне қазақстандық күннің қалай сәуле шашып шағылысқанын көремін. Ол қала шегіндегі адам қолымен жасалған жаңа өзен арнасы суында шомылып жүреді.
