Yang Jiechi informed Kassym-Jomart Tokayev on the measures taken by the Chinese leadership to combat the spread of COVID-19 outbreak.
The Head of State highly commended China’s efforts to contain the epidemic, reaffirming Kazakhstan's intention to jointly confront this global threat.
“The Republic of Kazakhstan fully agrees with the efforts and decisive actions of the leadership of the People's Republic of China at this difficult moment. As President Xi Jinping underscored, this is the period of the hardest tests that have befallen the Chinese people in recent years. I think that together we will fight against the difficulties that unfortunately arise from time to time. We will continue to move forward on the path of developing and strengthening the strategic partnership between our states,” the Head of State stressed.
During the meeting, the two also touched upon the prospects of strengthening the Kazakh-Chinese relations, as well as the interaction of the two countries in the international arena.
“Let me convey to you the best wishes of President Xi Jinping of China. Last September, you have paid your first state visit to our country. At the same time, together with the Chinese President, you announced the development of further comprehensive strategic partnership and gave a new impetus to the Chinese-Kazakh relations,” Yang Jiechi said.
