The head of state Nursultan Nazarbayev congratulated the ambassadors present on the official start of their diplomatic work in Kazakhstan and noted the symbolism of the solemn ceremony on the eve of Independence Day, reports the press service of Akorda.

- For 27 years, we have become a modern state with a rapidly growing economy. Having secured peace and social harmony, today we are paying great attention to improving human well-being. We are implementing large-scale programs and reforms to become one of 30 developed countries of the world, said the President of Kazakhstan.

Nursultan Nazarbayev noted that improving the quality of life of citizens is one of the main priorities of state policy.

The head of state highlighted the activities of Kazakhstan to resolve international and regional conflicts, an example of which is the "Astana process" to establish peace in Syria.

“In the conditions of escalation of military conflicts, strengthening of sanctions and trade wars without mutual trust, any anti-crisis actions will not have a positive effect,” said the President of Kazakhstan

Nursultan Nazarbayev pointed out that Kazakhstan intends to further develop trade and economic cooperation and friendly relations with the Kyrgyz Republic, and stressed that Kyrgyzstan is not only an important partner in Central Asia, but also a fraternal state, with which we have deep historical roots.

- We attach great importance to the development of a strategic partnership based on friendship and mutual understanding with Kyrgyzstan. I hope that the effective work of our governments in this direction will allow us to bring relations between the two countries to a new level, the Head of State said.

The President of Kazakhstan noted that political, trade, economic and humanitarian cooperation with Armenia is developing in the spirit of mutual trust and respect, and separately highlighted the prospects for cooperation between Astana and Yerevan within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union.

- In recent years, the volume of mutual trade increases. So, by the end of 2017, its growth was 68.4%. At the same time, it is important to fully use the potential of our countries in the trade and economic sphere,” said Nursultan Nazarbayev.

The head of state stressed that Iran is an important partner of Kazakhstan in the region, and focused on the need to expand cooperation with Tehran in the field of transport, logistics, agriculture, mining and metallurgy.

- I am convinced that the Convention on the Legal Status of the Caspian Sea, signed in Aktau, will give a new impetus to strengthening cooperation between our countries. We welcome the international agreement on Iran’s nuclear program and its further successful implementation, the President of Kazakhstan said.

In his speech, Nursultan Nazarbayev pointed out that relations with Afghanistan are developing along the lines of friendship and mutual understanding, and noted that Kazakhstan makes a significant contribution to the socio-economic development and stabilization of the situation in this country.

- As a member of the UN Security Council, we are involved in solving the Afghan problem. Every year, Kabul provides financial, technical and humanitarian assistance. An educational program is being implemented for Afghan youth. We are also ready to become one of the main suppliers of food products in Kabul, the Head of State said.

In addition, the President of Kazakhstan highly appreciated the current level of relations with Lithuania and stressed that cooperation in the field of transport and transit, also the opening of direct flights between Astana and Vilnius, has allowed to further strengthen bilateral ties.

In conclusion, Nursultan Nazarbayev once again congratulated the diplomatic workers on the start of an important and honorable mission in Kazakhstan and expressed confidence that their activities will contribute to the further development of cooperation between the countries.
