In addition, an exchange of views took place on a wide range of topical issues on the international and regional agenda, including priorities for Kazakhstan’s membership in the UN Security Council in 2017-2018. The sides reached an agreement on cooperation in the field of countering terrorism and interaction with the permanent missions in New York to strengthen peace and security.
The Australian side highly appreciated Kazakhstan’s contribution to the Syrian settlement through the holding of four rounds of the Astana process, which resulted in the establishment of a ceasefire regime and the formation of zones of de-escalation in Syria.
