MOSCOW, December 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian and Kazakh presidents will hold bilateral meeting on the sidelines of a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in Moscow. Russia’s presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said on Monday that Vladimir Putin and Nursultan Nazarbayev were expected to put their signatures to the Treaty on Military-Technical Co-operation between the two countries.
In addition, two protocols on amending the Russia-Kazakh oil transit agreement and the agreement on trade-economic co-operation in the sphere of oil and petroleum products deliveries are ready for signing in the Kremlin.
Referring to the agreement on the joint operation of the Baikonur spaceport, the Russian presidential aide said it was not ready for signing yet. “This document is so far at the stage of coordination,” Ushakov said.
At their sixth meeting this year, Putin and Nazarbayev will summarize the results of the outgoing year and plan activities in the context of the Agreement on Good-Neighborliness and Co-operation in the 21st century that was signed in Yekaterinburg in November. The sides will also discuss important trade-economic and political issues.
