ASTANA, September 12 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Thursday will discuss the drafting of a treaty on good neighborliness and allied relations in the 21st century between Russia and Kazakhstan, the Foreign Ministry said.
Lavrov is paying a return visit to Kazakh Foreign Minister Yerlan Idrisov’s trip to Russia on January 24-25.
The two ministers will discuss the state of and prospects for bilateral cooperation and interaction in integration structures and exchange opinions on pressing problems of the international agenda ahead of the 68th session of the UN General Assembly.
“The ministers will place a focus on the drafting of a treaty on good neighborliness and allied relations in the 21st century that is expected to be signed next year at the instruction of the two countries’ presidents,” the ministry said.
“The meeting’s agenda will also include issues concerning the 10th Russia-Kazakhstan Interregional Cooperation Forum that will take place in Yekaterinburg (Russia’s Urals city) with participation of the two countries’ presidents,” the source said.
Taking into account the fact that Russia and Kazakhstan form the core of the Eurasian integration process Lavrov and Idrisov will discuss modernization of bilateral interaction in such integration structures as the Customs Union, the CIS, the Collective Security Treaty Organization and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.
“The visit will become another stage to develop intensive political dialogue between Russia and Kazakhstan that reflects a high level of the two countries’ strategic partnership and their adherence to the course towards strengthening allied relations in the 21st century,” the ministry said.
After his visit to Astana Lavrov will fly to Geneva to meet US Secretary of State John Kerry. They are expected to discuss the situation in Syria, in particular a plan to put Syria’s chemical weapons under international control that the Russian side has handed over to the US.
