ASTANA, September 30 (Itar-Tass) - Kazakhstan will strengthen multilateral cooperation with Spain, President Nursultan Nazarbayev said.
Nazarbayev and Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy have agreed to expand cooperation. “We’ll continue developing multilateral cooperation,” the Kazakhstani president told a press conference after the talks.
At present, both countries cooperate in compliance with an agreement on strategic partnership. The agreement was signed in 2009. Over 70 joint ventures, which involve key Spanish companies, operate in Kazakhstan.
Cooperation in the fields of transport, the infrastructure and industry has big prospects, Nazarbayev said.
For his part, Rajoy said, “Spain and Kazakhstan have maintained an active dialogue. We want to continue it and strengthen.”
After the talks the companies “Kazakhstan Temir Zholy” and Spain’s “Talgo Patentes SL” signed a memorandum on mutual understanding to organise the production of suburban trains.
