ASTANA, April 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Relations with Russia remain an important direction of Kazakhstan’s foreign policy, President Nursultan Nazarbayev told the country’s people’s assembly on Friday.
He noted a crisis in international relations.
“Under these complicated conditions, I am stating - Kazakhstan and Russia are good neighbors, allies and strategic partners. We have base agreements in this sphere: last year we signed an agreement on good neighboring and alliance in the XXI century, and an agreement on the military and technical cooperation between our countries.
