"Now that many international processes have been suspended and there is a global crisis of financial confidence between major partners and close nations, our relations should be even more full-blooded," Medvedev told Nazarbayev.

According to a spokesman for the Kazakh presidential administration, the plan is aimed at developing bilateral strategic partnerships. It includes 40 concrete measures covering all areas of bilateral cooperation, including politics, energy, space and defense.
