Nursultan Nazarbayev thanked Vladimir Putin for the invitation to take part in the informal summit of CIS heads of state and noted the fruitfulness of the talks.
- There are no issues between our countries that remain unaddressed. Over 26 years of independence of our states, we have only become closer, created a treaty base and normal conditions for mutual cooperation, the President of Kazakhstan said.
The Kazakh leader has also separately dwelt on the Eurasian integration issue, along with mentioning the productive nature of cooperation between Kazakhstan and Russia.
- We agreed on all the matters, including the Caspian Sea, on the Baikonur Cosmodrome. In the field of space exploration, it is planned to create launch vehicles of a new type operating on more environmentally friendly fuels, Nursultan Nazarbayev said.
In his turn, the President of the Russian Federation noted the successful development of bilateral relations and thanked Nursultan Nazarbayev for the initiative to hold a meeting of high-level experts on digital technology development in Kazakhstan.
- The trade turnover growth between our countries for 10 months of this year has amounted to more than 34%. More importantly, and exactly this is aimed at the future: this is our cooperation, our joint work in the field of digital technology. Kazakhstan has been and remains our key partner in the spheres of economy, regional and international security, as well as ensuring the defence capacity of our countries, the President of Russia said.
During the meeting, the two leaders have also discussed cooperation in energy, space exploration and the digital economy.
