Kazakh President Kassym-Zhormart Tokayev ironically responded to the proposal of self-proclaimed President of Belarus Lukashenka to join his country in the "Union State" and obtain nuclear weapons. He stressed that he "appreciated the joke."

The video with Tokayev was published by the press service of the President of Kazakhstan.

Kassym-Jomart Tokayev called the Belarusian dictator's proposal a "joke" and ironically remarked that he "appreciated it."

"I appreciated his joke. I think that there is no need for this, since there are other integration associations, first of all, the Eurasian Economic Union," the leader of Kazakhstan said.

Tokayev also stressed that his country would adhere to international norms on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons.

"We remain faithful to our obligations under these international documents," the President of Kazakhstan added.

Recall, the self-proclaimed President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko called on the CIS countries to join the "Union State" (a supranational formation of Russia and Belarus) in order to obtain nuclear weapons.

Earlier, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev reproached Moscow and Minsk, saying Russia and Belarus, which create the so-called Union State, pose a problem for other states of the Eurasian Economic Union.
