Kazakhstan Peace Talks
In 2015 CPFA launched a ‘Committee of the Wise’ in order to address various topics related to international peace.
The committee was comprised of numerous Nobel Peace Prize Laureates including former President of Israel Shimon Peres, former Vice-President of Egypt and Director General of the IAEA Mohamed El Baradei, former President of Poland Lech Walesa, Guatemalan human rights activist Rigoberta Menchú Tum and former chair of the IPCC Rajendra Pachauri.
Other prominent political figures were also part of the committee, such as former President of Colombia Cesar Gaviria and former Prime Minister of Spain Jose-Luis Zapatero.
The committee gathered in Nur-Sultan Kazakhstan, where President Nazarbayev received them at the presidential palace.
The first event CPFA organized was attended by Kazakh Defense Minister Imangali Tasmagambetov at a luncheon in honor of the guests.
The second event took place at the Rixos Hotel in Astana, which was chaired by the then Chairman of the Senate Kassym-Jomart Tokayev.
