“Kazakh society has demonstrated its maturity and internal stability by supporting Kassym-Zhomart Tokayev in the presidential elections. International observers stated that the elections were held in full compliance with the law, democratically, freely and openly. The spirit of the new head of Kazakhstan allows us to expect that our long-standing strategic partner will continue to maintain and develop good-neighborly relations, strengthening ties between the Russian and Kazakh peoples. ” This opinion was expressed by a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Sergey Zheleznyak.
According to the politician: “Certainly, stability of Nursultan Nazarbayev’s position as the national leader of Kazakhstan, who remains the leader of the ruling NurOtan party, the Security Council and several other key political positions in the Republic, is an important factor of stability.”
The parliamentarian noted: “Thanks to the constructive and active work of Russia and Kazakhstan, as well as the personal contribution of the presidents of the two countries, our countries have become reliable allies in the international arena, strong partners in various sectors of the economy and the humanitarian sphere. We have many important, promising tasks that we will be addressing in alliance with our Kazakh colleagues.”
“Today, Kazakhstan is quietly and with dignity entering a new stage of its development, in which the colossal experience of building an effective socially oriented state should be preserved and multiplied. The friendly relations of Russia and Kazakhstan are an example of harmonious, strategic cooperation based on deep respect for the national interests and sovereignty of the two countries in the post-Soviet space. I am convinced that Russia and Kazakhstan will be able to maintain and strengthen the ties of our fraternal peoples, not allowing external destructive forces to negatively influence Russian-Kazakh relations, ”Zheleznyak stressed.
