Statement 
by the Delegation of Kazakhstan at the 
Closing of the Thirty-third Session of the 
Joint Compliance and Inspection Commission 
for the START Treaty 
Geneva, November 21, 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 notes the constructive 
negotiations during the Thirty-third session of the Joint 
Compliance and Inspection Commission.  There was a detailed 
exchange of views on this session's agenda items related to 
implementation of the START Treaty.  The Parties agreed to 
continue consideration of a number of issues during the 
intersessional period. 
 
      During this session the Parties held a meeting in 
accordance with paragraph 2 of Article XVII of the START 
Treaty to consider whether the Treaty will be extended. 
 
      In this connection, the Parties agreed that the Treaty 
provision on holding a meeting no later than one year prior 
to expiration of the Treaty has been fulfilled. 
 
      The Parties noted that discussion of the issue of 
extending the Treaty will continue during the intersessional 
period and that a decision can be made up until December 5, 
¶2009. 
 
      The Republic of Kazakhstan believes that fulfillment by 
the States-Parties of their obligations under the START 
Treaty is a major step toward nuclear disarmament and a 
genuine contribution to achievement of the objectives 
recorded in Article VI of the Treaty on the Non-proliferation 
of Nuclear Weapons. 
 
      We note the need to preserve and further develop the 
key accords on strategic offensive arms, which have for the 
last several decades served as the basis for maintaining 
international stability and security. 
 
      In conclusion, I would like to express our appreciation 
to all the Delegations for their cooperation, to specifically 
thank the interpreters and translators, and to wish everyone 
a good trip home. 
 
 
      Thank you for your attention.
