ASTANA, October 15. /TASS/. Presidents of Russia and Kazakhstan Vladimir Putin and Nursultan Nazarbayev are discussing at a meeting in Astana the bilateral relations and the development of the Eurasian Economic Union. Putin suggested the agenda while opening the meeting.
Putin noted that the status of a state visit with which he arrived in Kazakhstan "pointed to the level and nature of our relations." The Russian leader described cooperation between Russia and Kazakhstan as "not just trust-based, but as allied relations in every sense."
Putin noted that the global economy and the economies of the two countries were experiencing difficult times. He added though that trade between Russia and Kazakhstan in rubles demonstrated growth.
