G-Global is a reasonable alternative

The third summit in The Hague has become a powerful transmitter of G-Global principle of nuclear-free world, formulated by President Nursultan Nazarbayev as an imperative of a new world order in the XXI century. The forum confirmed Kazakhstan’s key role in the global anti-nuclear process.
During the cold war the threat of nuclear conflict increased as a result of periodic passions between two opposing poles – the USSR and the USA. The nuclear arms race was justified by apocalyptic logic of their owners – the need to ensure a balance of powers as a “reliable remedy” against the probability of unilateral nuclear attack.
Kazakhstani people, who survived in the twentieth century a whole era of nuclear and thermonuclear tests, know well that the use of nuclear weapons means a catastrophe for the whole world.
In general, during the period of active “work” of the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site, in total 138 air, 124 aboveground and 343 underground nuclear explosions were carried out on its territory.
The underground explosions were often accompanied by a blowout of inert gases – xenon -144, krypton-85 and 95, which generate hazardous durable type isotopes of strontium- 80, strontium -90, and yttrium 91, zirconium 95, Nb- 95 and other radioactive substances. All that had a harmful impact on the people’s health.
Today, when the world is developing in a different economic and geopolitical reality, the threat of uncontrolled expansion of the nuclear club has become a stumbling block to peace and conflict-free life. The desire to acquire nuclear and other mass destruction weapons, even by the countries with extremely problematic from the viewpoint of regional and global security internal situation, has become a global trend. And scientists believe that it is a form of abnormal reaction to that force which, despite the protests of progressive mankind, is trying to stake a “gold mine” even on the Mars.
Speaking at the summit in The Hague, President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev stressed that that meeting was held in the circumstances of crisis of global security. The underlying reason for this is the lack of political will to end the practice of “double standards” and a selective application of international law. At that, the Head of State once again noted the ineffectiveness of formats of G8 and G20 in tackling global problems of today. The format of G-Global should become an alternative to them.
– This is the path to a fair, transparent, multi-polar and constructive world order, which eliminates the threat of self-destruction of mankind, – said the President of Kazakhstan.
In today’s reality, when the meeting of the “Big Twenty” often ends with formal conclusions , the new world order format of G-Global offered by Kazakhstan, not only finds supporters in the international community, but also becomes a symbol of change. In contrast to the policies of nuclear arsenals’ conservation, the guarantee of nuclear safety and priority of peaceful use of atom are the overriding principles of dialectical components of G-Global.
Thus, the principle of a nuclear-free world, which constitutes the basis of G-Global, is the idea of Kazakhstani people who know firsthand the unjustified efforts to build and demonstrate nuclear muscle. A historic milestone on this path was the meeting of presidents of Kazakhstan, the Russian Federation and the United States in Seoul March 27, 2012, where a joint statement on trilateral cooperation at the former Semipalatinsk test site was announced. The heads of the two leading countries in the world then thanked Kazakhstan for its active and principle position on nuclear disarmament. At that President Barack Obama stressed that the progress in nuclear non-proliferation was achieved due to an outstanding contribution of Kazakhstan to the process.
This summit in The Hague not only confirmed this opinion, but also became a global transmitter of the principle G-Global.
