In the course of the meeting Nursultan Nazarbayev noted that over the 20 years of Kazakhstan’s independence the relations between the two countries have reached a high level.
“We are brotherly states, which are actively cooperating in the economy and culture and we are constantly organizing meetings of the high level. I would like to particularly note the meeting with the President of Turkey Abdullah Gul and the recent visit of the Prime Minister of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Turkey. In order to strengthen our mutual relations, we have created the Cooperation Council of Turkic Speaking States. Moreover, there are more than twenty Kazakh-Turkish high schools and two universities working throughout the country in the regions. It is a bright example of the mutual trust and high dynamics of the relations development between our countries. It is necessary to strengthen ties between Kazakhstan and Turkey at this level,” the President said.
Chairman of the Grand National Assembly of Turkey Cemil Cicek thanked for the meeting and conveyed the greetings of the Turkish leadership to the President of Kazakhstan.
“It is not my first visit to Kazakhstan and every time I come here, I can see the development of the country and its capital city Astana. My current visit is directed towards the further boost and strengthening of inter-parliamentary ties between the two countries,” Cemil Cicek noted.
During the talks, the sides discussed the issues of bilateral cooperation and the development of inter-parliamentary relations between Kazakhstan and Turkey.
