The Head of State noted the development of transport links between the two countries, as well as cultural and humanitarian interaction.

“Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan are not only interested in developing cooperation with each other, but also complementary on a number of issues. Therefore, the ultimate success is just around the corner. Moreover, my colleague, President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev, and I agreed to take the most active steps to develop comprehensive cooperation”, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev stated.

In turn, Tanzila Narbayeva thanked for the warm welcome and conveyed greetings from Shavkat Mirziyoyev.
