On 13 July 2020, as a result of online meetings on cooperation in various spheres of activity, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Center for Non-Proliferation and Export Control and the African Centre for Science and International Security.
The main purpose of the memorandum is to cooperate in promoting peacebuilding, education, emergency response, youth participation, the Stop Killer Robots campaign, international security, including the non-proliferation of WMD, disarmament, export control, arms control and other international initiatives that promote security.
Recall that the conclusion of the Memorandum also promotes one of the ideas of our Center to create an informal network of NGOs engaged in promoting international security, including in the implementation of UNSCR 1540. The formation of a community of experts from different countries, united by one goal and idea, will contribute to the effective implementation of the set tasks.
In a joint statement following the signing of the Memorandum, Executive Director of the Center on Non-Proliferation and Export Control Taalaibek Bektashev noted that this initiative will allow to implement joint development projects in the vast areas of Central Asia and Central Africa, as well as to expand opportunities for assistance to WMD non-proliferation, export control, arms control, other issues of security, peacebuilding and education.
