Nursultan Nazarbayev attended summit of the Council of Cooperation of the Turkic Speaking Countries in Baku and congratulated President Shavkat Mirziyoyev and the entire Uzbek people on joining the Turkic Council, reports.  

"Uzbekistan's accession to the Council is a historic and at the same time a long-awaited event for the entire Turkic community," Elbasy said.

In addition, Nursultan Nazarbayev stressed the special importance of opening a representative office of the Turkic Council in Budapest in the development of the European vector of cooperation.

At the same time, Elbasy highly appreciated the results of the work of the Kyrgyz Republic as Chairman of the Turkic Council.

I also want to express my gratitude to President Recep Erdogan for his proposal to grant me the status of "Honorary Chairman of the Turkic Council". I am grateful to all heads of delegation for supporting this initiative. This high status allows me to continue to actively participate in the work of our common organization, - said the First President of Kazakhstan.



Noting the importance of continuing the process of Turkic integration, the First President of Kazakhstan put forward two initiatives for the further development of the Turkic Council.

- First, I propose to develop a program "Turkic vision-2040". This document should reflect the long-term goals of the Turkic community and the ways to achieve them. Thanks to this, we will give a significant impetus to the strengthening of cooperation in priority areas for our States, such as foreign policy and the policy of "soft power", trade and transit, tourism and investment, energy and "green economy", small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs),- Nursultan Nazarbayev said.

In addition, Elbasy pointed to the need to include in the program activities in the fields of culture and education, youth policy and health, digitalization and artificial intelligence.

Also, the First President of Kazakhstan focused on the importance of the development of the "cradle of the Turkic world" - the city of Turkestan.

- Secondly, I propose to revise the name of our Council in the future. I consider it possible to raise the level of the cooperation Council of Turkic-speaking States to the level of an Organization. Thus, our structure can be called "Organization of Turkic States", Nursultan Nazarbayev suggested.
