The message reads in part:
”In the last 25 years, while relying on good traditions of friendship and mutual respect which connect the peoples of Russia and Kazakhstan, we managed to propel bilateral relations to a high level of strategic partnership and alliance.
Russian-Kazakhstani political dialogue, fruitful cooperation in the trade, economic, research and development, cultural, humanitarian and other spheres are developing rapidly. The coordination of efforts of our countries as part of the Eurasian Economic Union facilitates the strengthening of regional stability and security.
I am sure that acting together we will ensure the further extension of the entire complex of relations between Russia and Kazakhstan, constructive cooperation in resolving relevant issues on the international agenda. This definitely serves the vital interests of peoples of our countries.“
The President of Russia wished Mr Nazarbayev good health, success and all the very best.
