The Delegation of Kazakhstan

Statement by the Delegation of Kazakhstan
at the Closing of the Thirty-second Session
of the Joint Compliance and Inspection Commission
for the START Treaty
Geneva, July 24, 2008

Esteemed Mr. Chairman,

Esteemed Heads and Members of the Delegations of the
Republic of Belarus, the Russian Federation, Ukraine, and the
United States of America,

The Delegation of Kazakhstan is pleased to note the
constructive and productive negotiations during the
Thirty-second Session of the Joint Compliance and Inspection
Commission.

There was an exchange of views on a number of important
issues regarding implementation of the START Treaty.

We reaffirm Kazakhstan's position on the important role
played by the Treaty in maintaining strategic stability and
strengthening arms control. The Delegation of Kazakhstan has
steadfastly supported all the agreed steps aimed at achieving
these objectives.

In this connection, we welcome the signing by the START
Treaty Parties of Joint Compliance and Inspection Commission
Agreement Number 55 "Changes to Section I of the Conversion
and (sic) Elimination Protocol Regarding the Elimination
Process for ICBMs for Mobile Launchers of ICBMs."

At this session the Parties adopted Joint Statement
Number S-29 "On Changes to the Boundary of Drovyanaya ICBM
Base for Silo Launchers of ICBMs" and Joint Statement Number
40 "On the Elimination of SS-24 ICBM Solid Rocket Motor Cases
Located in Ukraine."

Esteemed Mr. Chairman,

In connection with the upcoming expiration of the START
Treaty on December 5, 2009, the Delegation of Kazakhstan
supports the Russian side's proposals to hold a meeting
before December 5, 2008, to discuss the question of extending
the Treaty. The Kazakhstani side expresses the hope that the
Parties will continue their substantive dialog during the
intersessional period.

In conclusion, I would like to express our appreciation
to all the delegations for their cooperation and to
specifically thank the interpreters and translators.

Thank you for your attention.
