ASTANA, October 28. /TASS/. Kazakhstan is waiting for an official visit of the European Union authorities for signing a new agreement on expanded partnership and cooperation, Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev said Wednesday.
"In October 2014, during my visit to Brussels, we have completed negotiations on agreement to expand partnership and cooperation with the European Union, as well as on conditions of accession to the World Trade Organization. We expect the EU authorities with an official visit to Astana for the signing of this historic document," Nazarbayev said.
"This new agreement, which we expect to sign in the near future to replace the agreement on partnership and cooperation of 1999, will provide solid and relevant foundation to the EU-Kazakhstan relations," according to the report by the press service of the EU Delegation to Kazakhstan.
As TASS reported earlier, the negotiations on the agreement on extended partnership between the European Union and Kazakhstan were officially completed in October 2014. The signing will take place after the approval of the document by the parliaments of 28 European Union member states.
Agreement on an expanded partnership covers 29 areas, including economy, trade and investment, justice and security, law, human rights, protection of personal data. The document should bring relations between Kazakhstan and the EU to a new level, replacing the current Agreement on partnership and cooperation.
