MOSCOW, October 8 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet with his Kazakh counterpart Nursultan Nazarbayev in Moscow on October 9, the Kremlin press service reported on Monday. Nazarbayev will arrive in the Russian capital at the invitation of the Russian president.
The two leaders will discuss the implementation of agreements reached during Putin’s official visit to Kazakhstan on June 7 and during the 9th forum on interregional cooperation between the two countries that was held in Pavlodar on September 19.
Apart from that, the two presidents will touch upon a wide range of issues of cooperation in the energy, space and industrial sectors, including the development of direct trade and economic ties between regions of the two countries, and key problems of the international agenda.
Kazakhstan is among Russia’s key foreign trade partners. In 2011, bilateral trade turnover increased by 35.4 percent as compared with 2010 to reach 20.5 billion U.S. dollars.
In 2012, the two countries mark the 20th anniversary of the Russia-Kazakhstan Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation and Mutual Assistance, and the 20th anniversary of diplomatic relations. After the talks, the two leaders are expected to attend a concert at the Bolshoi Theatre on the occasion of these jubilee celebrations.
