- I just have had a meeting with President Nursultan Nazarbaev, which was held in a very friendly atmosphere. We have had a very constructive conversation. This is the first time I am visiting Kazakhstan as the Prime Minister of the Republic of Korea, and I am very pleased with that. We have agreed to develop our economic relations not only in the areas of energy and mineral resources, but also in other areas. Thus, we will be able to broaden our economic collaboration and relations. We have agreed to diversify the economic collaboration between our two countries on the basis of developing innovative technologies including chemical industry, information technologies, education, and personnel training. President Roh Moo-hyun of the Republic of Korea invited President Nursultan Nazarbaev of the Republic of Kazakhstan to visit Korea in the next year. President Nursultan Nazarbaev has accepted our invitation. We hope, our two countries will further develop and will broaden collaboration between our two countries, - the Prime Minister of the Republic of Korea pointed out at a briefing for journalists.
