This initiative will be followed up in the spring with a course on international negotiation skills. 

The course was part of the follow-up to a joint declaration on the development of friendly relations and cooperation between Norway and Kazakhstan, which was signed in the Kazakh capital, Astana, in May 2004 by the Prime Minister of Norway at the time, Kjell Magne Bondevik, and the Kazakh President, Nursultan Nazarbayev.  

Capacity-building to enable Kazakhstan to take on the OSCE chairmanship, including through training Kazakh officials in Norway, was a key element of the declaration.
