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.

“Russia and Kazakhstan will also sign an agreement on co-operation in the sphere of Russian oil transportation through the Kazakh territory and People’s Republic of China,” Ushakov said.

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.
