As I talked to the Minister, I said the opportunity that we always show as the media organization show the interest and show the same interest that we have between our leadership and to show to our people that we are sharing many things and information and everything that we will have on both sides that will increase also more relationship between both countries. I think many people in UAE they would like to know more about Kazakhstan.
