On September 16, Nursultan Nazarbayev arrived at Tashkent's airport where the President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev welcomed the official guest to the country.

During this state visit, President Nazarbayev together with President Mirziyoyev participated in flower-laying ceremonies at the Monument of “Independence and Humanism”, which is the national symbol of the country, and at the monument of Islam Karimov, the first President of Uzbekistan.

Then, two presidents showed up at the architectural complex “Tole Biy Mausoleum”, which is one of the landmarks of Tashkent. Historically, biyes are sages of the Kazakh people who served as judges of the steppe. They had to be very wise and honest. Tole Biy was one of the most prominent three biyes in the Kazakhs’ history. This architectural monument is considered the oldest in the territory of modern Tashkent. The Mausoleum was built in the first half of the XV century.

At the end of the visit, Nursultan Nazarbayev and Shavkat Mirziyoyev held a briefing for the media, during which the two leaders announced the beginning of a new stage of relations between the fraternal states.

At the opening of the meeting, Shavkat Mirziyoyev heartily greeted the President of Kazakhstan on the Uzbek land and expressed deep respect to all the people of Kazakhstan.

“This year in relations between the two countries is historical. There is a serious breakthrough in all spheres of the economy. This is our sixth meeting, which is an evidence of friendly intentions between the two brotherly countries," said the President of Uzbekistan.

He also said that holding "EXPO-2017" and the first Summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation on science and technology at the highest level was possible due to the great authority of Nursultan Nazarbayev.

In turn, the President of Kazakhstan thanked the Uzbek leader for the invitation and warm welcome and noted the progressive development of bilateral relations.

“You have done a lot for the successful attempts to develop the bilateral relations in very short time. Thanks to our meetings, we managed to solve many problematic issues. Effective cooperation requires concrete action and mutual support", said Nursultan Nazarbayev.

President Nazarbayev concluded that Mr. Mirziyoyev has done a tremendous job during the year of the presidency. He emphasized the importance of the currency regulation, the opening of the border, creation of conditions for business.

Also during the talks, presidents discussed issues of strengthening cooperation in trade-economic, investment, agricultural, transit-transport, military-industrial and cultural-humanitarian spheres.
