Possibilities for a peaceful resolution of the situation in Syria have not yet been exhausted, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev believes, RIA Novosti news agency reported.
"Kazakhstan expresses its utmost concern over the reports on the use of chemical weapons in Syria. I am convinced that not all the possibilities of a peaceful settlement of the situation in Syria have been exhausted," Nazarbayev said at the SCO Summit in Bishkek.
Nazarbayev supported the Russian president's proposal to put Syrian chemical weapons under international control.
"I think this problem may be solved by peaceful measures and the whole world will benefit from such solution," he said.
Kazakh leader also stressed that the issue of the Iranian nuclear programme should be resolved peacefully.
Nazarbayev also said that the problems in Afghanistan following withdrawal of the anti-terrorist coalition troops in 2014 should be resolved by the Afghan people.
