The President of Kazakhstan pointed out that the process of regulating the legal status of the Caspian Sea, which began under the President of Azerbaijan Heydar Aliyev, has now been finalized by signing the relevant Convention.
Nursultan Nazarbayev noted that the day before there was a landmark event - the launch of the multimodal hub of Kuryk port, which opens up new transport and logistics opportunities for all countries of the region, Azerbaijan including.
- We built a railway along Kazakhstan and 6 automobile crossings, two of which are on the border with China. We built a logistics terminal in Lianyungang Port in the Pacific Ocean and built a modern highway through the whole territory of our country, the Head of State said.
In turn, Ilham Aliyev congratulated Nursultan Nazarbayev on the opening of the multimodal hub in the Caspian Sea and the great achievements that demonstrate Kazakhstan’s dynamic development.
- I am very glad to visit the land of fraternal Kazakhstan again. For us, Mangistau region is very close, both historically and geographically. The new opportunities of Kuryk port will allow us to cooperate even more closely, the President of Azerbaijan said.
I.Aliyev said that in May of the current year Azerbaijan opened the port of Alyak, which will ensure full integration of traffic flows, and noted the political and economic benefits of using the transit opportunities of the two countries.
- The Caspian has become the external transport artery. I would particularly like to note your contribution to the consensus on many complex issues. We will strive to ensure that all provisions of the Convention are implemented, and that the Caspian continues to play the role of stabilizer in the region, the President of Azerbaijan stated.
