Kazakhstan’s 2010 OSCE Presidency Priorities
At the 14 January 2010 session of the Permanent Council of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe Kazakhstan presented its priorities for the twelve-month Presidency in the organization. The Presidency will be Kazakhstan's means for selfpromotion and creating the country's positive international image. Kazakhstan's Presidency is expected to offer active support for the dialogue on the Nagorno-Karabakh issues, greater non-military assistance to Afghanistan, and deeper OSCE involvement in Central Asia problems. Even though the Kazakh Presidency asserts it attaches significance to human rights issues and democracy, reason tells one to be skeptical about such declarations.
