The issues on further development of trade and economic, cultural and humanitarian cooperation between the two countries were discussed at the meeting.
The Indian Minister highly assessed the policy pursued by the President of Kazakhstan which had been given a boost to the country’s economy.
He also expressed admiration at the speed with which construction works were progressing in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan.
Somanahalli Mallaiah Krishna noted that India and Kazakhstan had close friendly relations. It witnessed the fact that the President of Kazakhstan had become an honoured guest at the celebrations devoted to the national holiday, the Day of Republic, in January last year during the state visit to India.
“The visit of the President of Kazakhstan gave an important impetus to further development of the bilateral relations. Political and economic contacts are being actively developed between our countries. Kazakhstan is our close neighbor and we attach importance to further strengthening our cooperation. We intend to develop a roadmap for further stimulation of our cooperation in all spheres, including the economic and social realms. We can together promote security in this region,” the Indian Minister stressed at a press briefing.
