Permanent Mission of Kazakhstan to the International Organizations in Vienna

For more than four decades, starting from 1949, part of Kazakh land was used by the Soviet Union to test its nuclear weapons. Up to 1.5 million of our people were exposed to the nuclear fallout from the 456 explosions detonated at the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site, acknowledged as the second largest in the world.

With the relentless and unfailing support of our citizens, who protested the reckless use of their native soil that was also affecting their health and lives, the First President Nursultan Nazarbayev decided on behalf of Kazakhstan to close the test site. This historic step was taken 30 years ago on 29 August 1991. Later, Kazakhstan also voluntarily gave up the world’s fourth most potent nuclear arsenal.

In recognition of Kazakhstan’s historic decision, the UN General Assembly proclaimed the 29th of August as the International Day against Nuclear Tests.

Last year the TPNW entering into force coincided with the 30th anniversary of the closure of the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site, which we found very symbolic.

In this regard, these days of the Conference the Permanent Mission of Kazakhstan would like to present an exhibition dedicated to the closure of the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site. Prohibition of nuclear testing and nuclear weapons is the only right choice on the way to peace and stability. Kazakhstan is a prime example of this.
