ALMATY, February 27. /TASS/. Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev believes that Russia and Kazakhstan have built perfect relations over the past quarter of a century.
"Over the past 25 years we have built a perfect sample of relations that should exist between friendly neighbors and countries," Nazarbayev said at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday. "This year marks 25 years of our diplomatic relations. Our agencies concerned celebrate the event."
On the list of achievements he mentioned creation of the Eurasian Economic Union, which had become a "promising, important affair" for all members of the Union.
Nazarbayev said Russia remained Kazakhstan’s "number one partner in politics and the economy."
He mentioned plans for a series meetings with the Russian leader due later this year. Nazarbayev explained that Putin had already agreed to take part in the Silk Road conference in China in April.
"Then there will be a Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Kazakhstan on June 8 and the opening of the world exhibition EXPO-2017. And the Inter-regional conference in the autumn is also ours," Nazarbayev said.
