By Daniyar Mukhtarov - Trend:

Kazakhstan will continue to contribute to the process of settlement of the Iranian nuclear program, President Nursultan Nazarbayev said on Feb.5 at the traditional meeting with the heads of foreign diplomatic missions accredited in the country.

"The negotiations of six countries on Iran's nuclear program held in Almaty became an important experience for the formation of the U.N. Regional Center in Almaty. We will continue this work," Nazarbayev said.

The president recalled that Kazakhstan hosted two rounds of multilateral negotiations on the settlement of the problem of the Iranian nuclear program.

"Thus, we contributed to achieving the "Geneva breakthrough" which we unambiguously welcome and support," the Kazakh leader said.

The participation in the inauguration of the new Iranian president and the negotiations held there were also aimed at providing the peaceful solution to the problem, according to the president.

"Kazakhstan which voluntarily renounced nuclear weapon and received recognition and the attention of the whole international community, is a positive example and good "lighthouse" for countries such as Iran," Nursultan Nazarbayev said.
