The Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) will have to change some principles of its work methods, taking into account the complicated geopolitical situation, Zakon.kz reported citing Kairat Sarybai, Executive Director of the CICA Secretariat .
Today the geopolitical situation is not so simple. Serious contradictions emerged. At the same time, these contradictions can never be overcome by forceful methods or by imposing one’s position. Therefore, I believe that the CICA should update its tools, Sarybai believes.
He also said that the CICA already has an updated catalog of confidence building measures, which includes serious innovations, new elements, taking into account the current development, new challenges and threats.
Sarybai added that active preparations are underway for the upcoming CICA summit in Astana on October 12-13. This meeting, according to the executive director of the CICA, “may set some records and create unprecedented situations in a positive sense.”
CICA is an international forum that unites the states of the Asian continent. It sets itself the task of strengthening relations and cooperation between Asian and Eurasian states in order to ensure stability and security in the region.
