Kazakh-U.S. ties chronicled in photos
A photo exhibition dedicated to the official visit of President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, to the United States and Kazakhstan’s membership in the UN Security Council has been opened in the Archive of the President in Almaty. The exposition includes photos and documents from the first days of cooperation with America to the present day. The exposition consists of two parts. The exhibition reflects the entire history of the diplomatic relations between the two states. The United States of America was one of the first countries to recognize Kazakhstan’s independence. Visitors can read a copy of the letter of recognition by the US President George W. Bush. Archives that indicate the visit of the UN leaders to the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site are available for the visitors, too. All exhibit items demonstrate Kazakhstan’s important role in the world.
