Lukashenko to visit Kazakhstan soon

MINSK, 28 August (BelTA) – I plan to visit Kazakhstan in the near future, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with outgoing Kazakhstan’s Ambassador to Belarus Ermukhamet Ertysbayev on 28 August, BelTA has learned.

“I believe that soon I will have an opportunity to visit Kazakhstan and we will discuss the whole range of our relations. We, together with Kazakhstan President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, agreed to revise our relations and work out a plan of action for the future (or, as it is often said today, a roadmap of our relations for the coming years). We will approve this roadmap in Nur-Sultan. But before, our intergovernmental commission will take a look at all the issues we have and make decisions on our further relations,” the president said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko expressed confidence that the recent elections in Kazakhstan and that complicated political period in general will do a power of good to the people of Kazakhstan. The head of state has stressed that he knows current Kazakhstan President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev very well. “He is a decent and well-educated person. I respect him highly. We will have good relations with him, the same as Kazakhstan and Belarus will continue developing relations in the same vein,” the president said.
He asked the ambassador to convey the best wishes and greetings to the president of Kazakhstan. “I also ask you to convey my wishes of strong health to my long-standing friend, Nursultan Nazarbayev,” the Belarusian leader added.

As for Ermukhamet Ertysbayev, the president is confident that he will always be a friend of Belarus. “This is your Belarus, your country that you have known for a very long time, from the Soviet period. You have lived and worked here for many years,” the head of state said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko added: “When I was preparing for this meeting, I discovered that we are both historians by training.”
