BEIJING, June 6 (Itar-Tass) — Chinese President Hu Jintao highlighted on Wednesday the visit of Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev, saying at talks that “it will give an additional impetus for strengthening further Chinese-Kazakh relations and strategic partnership”.
On the results of the talks the sides signed a joint declaration as well as an intergovernmental agreement on border crossing points. Kazakh Minister for Transport and Communications Askar Zhumagaliyev and the Minister of the General Administration of China Customs inked the document.
President Nazarbayev stressed that the development of cooperation between Astana and Beijing within 20 years after Kazakhstan had become an independent state was “an impressive breakthrough on all directions of political and economic cooperation”.
“The treaty on good-neighborly relations, friendship and cooperation was signed in 2002,” he said. “The strategy of cooperation in the 21st century and the declaration on comprehensive strategic partnership – are the important documents that we have signed. An intensive exchange of visits at the summit level testifies to a high level of our trust,” the Kazakh leader stressed.
He said that was his 13th visit to China and his 26th meeting with the Chinese president. Nazarbayev also met with Vice President Xi Jingping. “As the leaders of the two states you have outlined a new strategic comprehensive plan for the development of cooperation between China and Kazakhstan. I am confident that your visit will give it a new powerful impetus,” the vice president stressed.
