Nursultan Nazarbayev pays official visit to U.S.

Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev met with Donald Trump in Washington D.C. yesterday.  This is the first Presidential reception at the White House in 2018, which demonstrates the importance of the meeting for White House.    

NURSULTAN NAZARBAYEV, PRESIDENT OF KAZAKHSTAN:

 - I believe that my visit will bring the Kazakh-U.S. relations to the level of an expanded strategic partnership for the benefit of both nations and countries.

DONALD TRUMP, U.S. PRESIDENT:

 - President of Kazakhstan with us, we have a tremendous relationship in terms of economics. A lot of goods are being purchased from our country meaning jobs, General Electric, Boeing, tremendous amounts of money. Kazakhstan is doing very well.

The nuclear safety is a concern more than ever. The American president noted that Kazakhstan's experience in this matter is priceless and should serve as an example for other countries. Both leaders condemned the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, including the illegal nuclear and missile programs of North Korea.

NURSULTAN NAZARBAYEV, PRESIDENT OF KAZAKHSTAN:

 - Kazakhstan abandoned the world's fourth nuclear arsenal and ended the world's largest nuclear test site in Semipalatinsk. We have a moral right to propose the countries that have nuclear weapons to do just like we did. So we proposed to Iran and now we are negotiating with Korea.

DONALD TRUMP, U.S. PRESIDENT:

 - Today the president and I have a serious discussion how can our relationship can further safety, prosperity and well-being of our people. Kazakhstan is a valued partner in our reference to rid Korean Peninsula off nuclear weapons. Together we have to determine to prevent the North Korean regime from threatening the world with nuclear devastation. Kazakhstan will continue to provide critical logistical support and access for our troops fighting ISIS.

The dialogue between the two leaders was fruitful: more than 20 documents on investment, trade and economic cooperation with the largest financial institutions of the United States and world-famous companies worth nearly US$7 billion were signed during the visit.
