As reported earlier, President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev arrived in our country on 14 April with a working visit at the invitation of President Islam Karimov.
The main events of the visit took place on 15 April at the Kuksaroy residence.
Islam Karimov and Nursultan Nazarbayev discussed the state and prospects of developing Uzbek-Kazakh relations in different areas, topical regional and international issues.
The President of our country, greeting the President of Kazakhstan, noted that this visit is a logical extension of meetings at the highest level.
– We are always glad to see You in Uzbekistan. Uzbek and Kazakh nations since ancient times were good neighbours and friends. Today the cooperation between our countries has been developing based on these principles. In conditions of the current fast-changing and all the more aggravating international circumstances, this friendship and mutual understanding has a particular significance. Your visit is a favorable condition for discussing a number of issues of mutual interest, said Islam Karimov.
The President of Kazakhstan expressed gratitude to the President of Uzbekistan for invitation and highlighted that cooperation between our states has been steadily developing in all spheres.
– As you rightly underlined, our nations since ancient times live side by side, in peace and concord. In the years of independence we have strengthened these relations even more. Cooperation of our countries, as the leading states in Central Asia, has a significant importance for the whole region. We are equally interested in further strengthening and steady development of bilateral interactions, said Nursultan Nazarbayev.
