ASTANA, October 15. /TASS/. Russia is Kazakhstan’s "strategic partner and ally," the Central Asian country’s president, Nursultan Nazarbayev, said on Thursday.
"We are cooperating at the Eurasian Economic Union and successfully implementing bilateral projects in the economic, scientific and humanitarian spheres," Nazarbayev said after the talks with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.
"We focused on the key international issues, including the implementation of the Minsk agreements and cooperation within global and regional organizations aimed at stability and security in Central Asia," Nazarbayev said.
Meanwhile, Putin said he had informed Nazarbayev "about the main results of the Normandy Quartet in Paris, the developments in Syria and our efforts to suppress terrorism in this country."
Putin said the Russian-Kazakh intergovernmental commission aimed "to boost the development of mutual trade and economic cooperation", adding that the commission’s next meeting would take place by the end of 2015.
A number of documents in the spheres of oil production, space launches and rescue efforts have been signed following the talks of the two leaders.
