Vladimir Putin and Nursultan Nazarbayev will continue the discussion of key bilateral issues at the talks in Moscow
The Russian and Kazakh leaders, Vladimir Putin and Nursultan Nazarbayev, will continue the discussion of key bilateral issues at the talks in Moscow, as well as of pressing international and regional subjects. Their meeting taking place within the framework of Nazarbayev's current official visit to Russia on April 3-5 will be the third for the two presidents this year. In January, Putin attended the inauguration of the Kazakh leader in Astana. Nazarbayev then made a visit to St. Petersburg. A high-ranking Kremlin official told Itar-Tass that the parties will exchange views "on interaction and prospects for developing and strengthening integration bodies - the Commonwealth of Independent States, the Common Economic Space, the Collective Security Treaty Organization, the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, and the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia." "Cooperation in the trade and economic, energy, nuclear, oil/gas and military fields is a priority for both countries," the official emphasized. The Kremlin is hoping to "analyze, in the course of Nazarbayev's visit, the performance of the intergovernmental economic cooperation commission, including its contribution to the strengthening of economic interaction." Russian-Kazakh trade in 2005 reached 9.7 billion dollars, the representative of the presidential administration reminded. He added that the leaders will consider "further perfection of the legal and contractual basis." The two countries are expected to sign protocols on changes and addenda to Russian-Kazakh agreements of January 20, 1995, on the terms of use and leasing of test fields located in Kazakhstan, the agreement on allotting a orbiting position for Kazakhstan's KAZSAT communications satellite, the agreement on cooperation between Vneshekonombank and the Eurasian Industrial Association, and the plan of actions on cooperation between the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of the two countries. Putin and Nazarbayev will take part in the ceremony to unveil a monument to Kazakh poet Abai Kunanbayev in Moscow and open the Year of Abai in Russia. For its part, Kazakhstan will open the Year of Pushkin. "These events will contribute to further strengthening of cultural ties between our countries and become and important step in practical implementation of the declaration and the agreement on developing humanitarian cooperation signed by heads of CIS states in 2005," the Kremlin official said.
