Kazakhstan shares the view of the majority of countries - members of the United Nations that the Security Council in its current form no longer reflects the realities of our world, because there is no account of the new arisen in the past two decades, the centers of power. Therefore, according to the official position of the country, the composition of the council should expand to more adequately represent the interests of all regions of the world, and the number of its permanent members should be replenished by states that have sufficient economic potential and political influence". Their views on President N.Nazarbayev's Message to the People of Kazakhstan "New Opportunities for Development under the Conditions of the Fourth Industrial Revolution" were shared by the students Son Alexander, An Alina and Orazaly Aizada.
