"EVOLUTION INSTEAD OF REVOLUTION" IS PRIMARY G-GLOBAL PRINCIPLE, NAZARBAYEV
Astana. May 23. Interfax-Kazakhstan - President Nursultan Nazarbayev presented the fundamental principles for the G-Global initiative.
"In order to let the world to make continuous progress, it is necessary to develop fundamental principles of the 21st century world order. Constructive development of the human civilization, in my opinion, can be ensured by five principles that I propose to call "the G-Global principles,"" he said at the fifth Astana Economic Forum on Wednesday.
According to Nazarbayev, "evolution, but not revolution" must become the first principle of the G-Global initiative. "Humanity reached the ceiling of revolutions and World Wars in the 20th century. So, today all wisdom of humanity must be aimed at keeping the peace, or else, it will be facing self-destruction," he said.
"In the 21st century, a successful renovation of the global architecture can't be done in any other way, but evolution. As seen in the example of "the Arab Spring," any revolution just stalls the development of the society and economy, pushes back social development and complicates relations between the states and generates more problems," said Nursultan Nazarbayev.
According to him, the revolution in the 21st century may be made "only in the field of science and technology." It is a destructive force, if applied to the political and social life, especially if imposed on a poorly developed economic background." "The path of reform is the only way to step into the 21st century," said the President of Kazakhstan.
The second principle could be "justice, equality and consensus." "In the 21st century, the division of countries into mighty and minor or leaders and followers, has become obsolete. (...) The alternative to such geopolitical practice is fair principles for development of the global economy, monetary system and politics based on the equality of all nations," he said.
"The third principle is a global tolerance and trust. I am impressed by the conclusion of the authors of the modern concept of the creative class that tolerance is an important factor of economic growth in the 21st century. Kazakhstan had recognized it a long time ago and started a dialogue between religions. It does not apply exclusively to ethnic and inter-confessional relationship, relationship between states must be tolerant as well, regardless of their geopolitical weight, influence, historical experience, level of economic and social development. Without tolerance we can't achieve a global trust and without the global trust, there is no place for anti-crisis solutions," he continued.
The fourth principle proposed by Nursultan Nazarbayev is the "global transparency." "G-Global world is a transparent community of nations devoid of double standards that humiliate nations both big and small. We need ultimate openness and transparency in the international affairs for successful development of the global economy and higher prosperity of every nation," said the head of state.
The fifth principle, according to the president, should be called "constructive multilateralism."
"Creating a multi-polar world is a trend of the global development of the 21st century, but the question is how the poles will interact. (...) The only alternative to the challenges and threats is constructive multilateralism. It should be a balanced system of geopolitical checks and balances, without blocks that are a negative legacy of the bipolar world. It must be devoid of geopolitical snobbery. Powerful integration associations must work and coexist peacefully. The Eurasian Economic Union, which we are creating, will hopefully become one of them," he concluded.
