"Nowadays it's usual for Kazakhstanis to share our lives for the periods before and after independence. On December 16, 1991 Kazakhstan has begun its entirely new history. We, the people of Kazakhstan, became the founders and pioneers of the Kazakh era of nation's ascension. It is the exact name of our precious time and all our great achievements", the Leader of the nation said.
According to the President, in 100 Kazakh ethnic groups, there are at least 100 special, unique features, and they all add up to a unique advantage of our united nation.
