Even during the Cold War, the UN was much more united than now. During an open and frank discussion in a special panel session of the Qatar Economic Forum, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev pointed out to the split over in the international community and the weakness of the UN Security Council in resolving the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. Answering a question about the prospects of resolving this conflict peacefully, the leader of Kazakhstan stressed the importance of continuing the negotiation process. According to him, the goodwill of both states is necessary to resolve the conflict.
“Never before the UN has been in such bad situation. We remember the time of the Cold War many years ago. Even during the Cold War, the UN was much more united than now. I am very much concerned about what will be happening with UN in the future. I do believe that the international community must show its solidarity, and of course to put positive influence on both states. So that that we could bring them together to come to peace,” President Tokayev stated.
