Nursultan Nazarbayev praised the practice of meetings between the Heads of the Presidential Administrations of Kazakhstan and Russia.
“Kazakhstan and Russia have signed about 20 documents over the last two years. The Presidential Administrations are those authorities which coordinate and control the work of ministries and agencies on the implementation of these agreements. They are able to positively influence on the development of bilateral relations. You have to meet each other as often as possible, especially taking into consideration the fact that we, Heads of the two states, serve as a good example to you,” the President of Kazakhstan underscored.
Issues of preparing the informal summit of CIS member states, which will be held in Saint-Petersburg in the next month, were also considered during the conversation.
On the same day Sergey Sobianin met with Head of the Administration of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Adilbek Dzhaksybekov. The implementation course of the agreements achieved during the last Kazakhstani-Russian meetings at the highest level was discussed at the meeting. The sides noted the importance of interaction between the Presidential Administrations in ensuring the practical implementation of the Plan for joint actions of Kazakhstan and Russia for 2007-2008 that covers all areas of bilateral interaction in the nearest future.
Sergey Sobianin underscored that the constitutional amendments, which radically change Kazakhstan’s political system, have been accepted with a great interest in Russia. During the meeting the sides exchanged views on the implementation course of economic reforms in Russia and Kazakhstan. The interlocutors expressed an opinion that Russia and Kazakhstan are the pivot of stability in the CIS countries.
“The contacts, which are being formed between the Presidential Administrations of Russia and Kazakhstan, assist to the further implementation of agreements adopted at the level of Heads of state,” Sergey Sobianin said.
During the trip to Kazakhstan Sergey Sobianin is going to view the development plan of Astana, will visit a number of objects in the capital city and the Akmolinskaia region.
