MOSCOW, May 8. /TASS/. Kazakhstan President’s decision to spend May 9, the Victory Day, in Moscow will promote strengthening trust between the two countries, Russian President Vladimir Putin said during a meeting with his Kazakh counterpart who arrived in Moscow on Sunday.
"Undoubtedly, it is a manifestation of our special relations, our allied relations. It is very pleasing for us and we would like to thank you for that," Putin said. "Your decision will strengthen trust and will create favorable conditions for further development of our friendly ties."
The Russian leader expressed confidence that the Russian-Kazakh relations will continue to develop in a positive and comprehensive manner.
Nazarbayev, in turn, noted the intensity of bilateral contacts. He reminded that the Supreme Council of the Eurasian Economic Union will meet by the end of May and the leaders of the two countries will have an opportunity to discuss all the problems they have. This meeting will be followed by a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in Tashkent.
"The program is very rich, with lots of meetings," the Kazakh president said. "It is right, especially in this difficult time.".
Nazarbayev congratulated Russian President on the successful launch from Russia’s new spaceport Vostochny in the Far East. "I have arrived here to congratulate you on Russia’s huge technological success - the launch from the Vostochny spaceport," Nazarbayev said at a meeting with Putin.
According to the Kazakh leader, Russia has managed to build "a state-of-the-art spaceport" few states can afford. "You have done it, you have made history for Russia and it will be remembered by many generations. As an ally, as a closest partner, I am impressed," he added.
The first launch from Russia’s Vostochny new spaceport with the help of the Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket took place at 05:01 a.m. Moscow time (02:01 GMT) on April 28.
