The Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) is a multi-national forum for enhancing cooperation towards promoting peace, security and stability in Asia. It is a forum based on the recognition that there is close link between peace, security and stability in Asia and in the rest of the world. The Member States, while affirming their commitment to the UN Charter, believe that peace and security in Asia can be achieved through dialogue and cooperation leading to a common indivisible area of security in Asia where all states co-exist peacefully and their peoples live in peace, freedom and prosperity. The idea of convening the CICA was first proposed by President of Kazakhstan, in 1992, during the 47th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, and First Ministerial Meeting was held in September 1999. The Secretariat was established in 2006 and is located in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
Its flag is white with its emblem and its blue abbreviation.
