Congratulation of President Nazarbayev on the International Women’s Day
President Nursultan Nazarbayev congratulated women on the upcoming International Women’s Day. Ahead of the holiday, President Nazarbayev held the annual spring meeting attended by outstanding women, representing various regions and professions. After congratulating the women, the President highlighted that maternity is the foundation of the country and that mothers with many children deserve special respect and honor.
“The power of maternity is unlimited. There is a saying that ‘the whole world bends before the mother’. We know that during the war, if the mother took off her scarf and tossed it on the ground, the fighting stopped and peace was restored. We are the people who honor women who preserve traditions. Kazakh people always honored women. It is a solid tradition in families. The hearts of people cannot but shiver when they hear the word ‘mama’,” he said.
At the meeting, Nursultan Nazarbayev awarded mothers of many children with Gold and Silver Medals.
