By Daniyar Mukhtarov - Trend:
Kazakhstan allocated $40,000 for the monitoring of the OSCE mission in Ukraine, the Kazakh foreign ministry said Oct. 27.
"Kazakhstan allocated $40,000 to support the activity of the OSCE special monitoring mission in Ukraine as part of the cooperation in the international organizations," a statement says.
"This mission pays special attention to the implementation of the agreements on the cessation of hostilities."
The possibility of working out and implementing a broad program of economic and humanitarian aid to Ukraine is being considered in accordance with Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev's statement made at the Minsk summit "Customs Union-Ukraine-European Union" August 26, 2014.
"A special monitoring mission has proved itself as an OSCE effective tool clearly demonstrating the ability of this organization to respond to crises quickly and effectively," the ministry said.
In particular, this mission has played a positive role in providing an opportunity for investigators to examine the site of the Malaysia Airline flight MH17 plane crash, as well as in the implementation of the Geneva joint statement and the Berlin agreement on the situation in Ukraine, the report said.
