Under your leadership, Kazakhstan is entering a new stage of development. Effective political, economic and social reforms are being carried out. I am sure that all this will have a positive impact on the prosperity of your country. I am convinced that cooperation between Turkey and Kazakhstan will continue to strengthen. Our countries have great potential for expanding ties in the fields of trade, technology, industry, logistics, energy and agriculture," said the Chairman of the National Assembly of Turkey.
