TURKPA Secretary General received the representatives of the incoming Chairmanship of CICA
The idea on convening a conference that deal with creation of pan-Asian security structure for the first time was proposed by H.E. Mr. Nursultan Nazarbayev, President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, on 5 October 1992, at the 47th Session of the United Nations General Assembly. The moving spirit behind this initiative was the aspiration to set up an efficient and acceptable structure for ensuring peace and security in Asia.
Mr. Jandos Asanov, who used to be the first Executive Director of CICA in 2006-2008, said that the past time has proven the far-sightedness and timeliness of the idea of the President of Kazakhstan. Currently CICA has established itself as unique international platform, which brings together more than twenty Asian countries and carries out confidence building measures in various areas. The regular activities of CICA have enabled accumulation of substantial experts’ potential that paves way to construction in future a security structure that covers all the parts of Asia.
