UNODA – OSCE Project on Facilitating Regional Implementation of UNSCR 1540 (2004); Kyrgyzstan NAP Review Meeting
NEW YORK, 7 March (Office for Disarmament Affairs) – The United Nations Regional Centre for Peace and Disarmament in Asia and the Pacific (UNRCPD) and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) are jointly organized a round-table meeting to review the National Action Plan (NAP) on the implementation of United Nations Security Council resolution 1540 (2004) of Kyrgyzstan. The meeting took place from 8 to 10 March 2017 in the OSCE Head Quarters in Vienna, Austria
Representatives of ministries and state agencies of Kyrgyzstan responsible for implementing resolution 1540 (2004) met with the representatives of the Expert Group of the Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1540 (2004), UNRCPD, the OSCE, the International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime and other international organizations to share experiences and assess achievements in their work.
The Government of Kyrgyzstan has implemented most of the national measures set out in the NAP which was adopted on 22 March 2013. The meeting provided an opportunity for the national officials to reflect with international experts on the progress in its implementation. Participants will further focus on updating the NAP and complementing it with new national measures with a view to prevent the proliferation of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons and their means of delivery to non-State actors. Special attention was given to the role of national stakeholders in ensuring continued progress and to the coordination of efforts by the relevant international organizations in providing assistance.
This event was implemented as part of the UNODA-OSCE Joint Project for Regional Implementation of UNSCR-1540 in Central Asia.
