In his speech, the President of Kazakhstan gave an opinion concerning the future of the Summit.

- I hope that in the face of contemporary challenges and threats, most of the members of the world community will support continuation of our work after 2016. Kazakhstan is ready to support such a decision. I propose to hold meetings at a high level every 4-5 year, - the head of state said.

Nursultan Nazarbayev called a number of convincing reasons why such a practice should continue. The head of state stressed that the world sees a revival of nuclear power.

- This process can lead to the growth of risks to sensible technologies and materials and the growth of threat of nuclear terrorism. Under these complex realities, a political impulse, given during the previous summits, should be conserved, - the President of Kazakhstan said.

Also, Nursultan Nazarbayev pointed out that the goals and tasks, set at the previous summits, were not fully implemented. In this regard, further improvement of national legislations and universalisation of key multilateral instruments in the sphere of nuclear security are needed.

The President of Kazakhstan emphasised that there is a huge reserve of nuclear materials in the world, which are used in armament and other fields of military technologies.

- The international instruments providing security of nuclear materials out of the Non-Proliferation Treaty should be elaborated. I am convinced that it will contribute to integrated solution to the problem of strengthening the global nuclear security, - Nursultan Nazarbayev said.

Besides, the head of state stressed annual growth of demand in additional reliable sources of energy, necessary for sustainable development.

- We are standing on the cusp of opening the new types of energy, surpassing the energy of atom in power and effectiveness. The task is to make them the most secure and accessible, - the President of Kazakhstan stressed.

At the end, a physical security in developing and introducing new nuclear technologies in various sectors was called by Nursultan Nazarbayev a sphere, which claims a special attention of the world community.
