ASTANA, September 12 (Itar-Tass) - Russia has expressed gratitude to Kazakhstan for support of its efforts on Syria and Iran, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after talks with his Kazakh counterpart Yerlan Idrisov on Thursday.
“We thank for support of our efforts, including those concerning Syria’s crisis and Iran’s nuclear programme,” he said.
The two countries consider it important to develop the Collective Security Treaty Organization’s potential, including that in the context of foreign troops pullout from Afghanistan, Lavrov said adding that “practical steps will be considered at the CSTO summit soon.”
He also paid attention to the fact that key areas of cooperation were fixed in the plan of actions for 2013-2015. “There are over 40 such projects, of them 11 are being considered this year,” Lavrov said.
The Russian diplomat invited his Kazakh counterpart to visit Moscow in any time convenient for him.
