Astana Summit Ends, No Action Plan Agreed

The two-day summit meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Kazakhstan ended late on Thursday with member states failing to agree on an action plan.

The 56-member security group, instead, signed the Astana Commemorative Declaration, which renewed their previous commitment to principles of a free and democratic security community from Vancouver to Vladivostok.

Speaking to media following the summit, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev said the “historic” summit was successful.

“It demolished the decrepit wall between Europe and Asia and enriched the Helsinki spirit with the Astana spirit,” he said.

The failure to reach an agreement on an action plan, which would address threats to security of the OSCE community, was mainly because of failing to reach a breakthrough in conflicts on Nagorno-Karabakh and Georgia’s breakaway regions.
