The new president of Kazakhstan, Kasym-Jomart Tokayev, arrived in Moscow on Wednesday, April 3, according to RIA Novosti. This is his first official trip abroad as the head of state. He plans to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss bilateral relations.

On the eve of the trip the Kazakh leader gave an interview to the Kommersant newspaper. He stressed that Russia and Kazakhstan had no issues that could not be resolved during the constructive dialogue. Tokayev called Moscow a reliable strategic partner and good neighbor.

The head of Kazakhstan noted that our countries had established a political dialogue that was carrying on intensively. Relations in the economic sphere are developing and strengthening, as well as in other areas. Tokayev reminded that Kazakhstan and Russian leaders had repeatedly said that their cooperation could serve as an example of intergovernmental relations.

There is no doubt that the preservation of ties between nations is one of the main conditions for the welfare of both states, the President of Kazakhstan stressed. The two countries have a long common history, common cultural and spiritual space, strong ties in the economy, the longest common border in the world.

Tokayev is confident that our countries should keep friendly relations between nations. That is what he sees as one of his duties as president.

Note, Kasym-Jomart Tokayev took the position of head of state on March 20 after Nursultan Nazarbayev resigned.
