Darkhan SATYBALDY: “This year will remain in the memory of fraternal people as the year that will raise relations to a new stage”
On April 12, the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev received credentials from foreign ambassadors. Darkhan SATYBALDY is among them. He has begun his activity as the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Kazakhstan to Uzbekistan.
Following the ceremony of presenting credentials, the Ambassador shared his opinion with UzA correspondent.
– Close friendly relations are established between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. Over the past few years, the trade turnover between our countries has reached 3 billion US dollars. By 2020, we are planning to bring this figure to 5 billion USD. Active work is underway in this area.
The President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev will arrive in Uzbekistan on April 14 on a state visit. This is one of the first foreign visits of the Head of our state, which indicates very close relations between our countries. During the visit, the official opening ceremony of the Year of Kazakhstan in Uzbekistan will be held. I think that this year will also remain in the memory of the fraternal people as the year that raised our relations to a new, higher level.
