Cooperation between Kazakhstan and Bolivia
Kazakhstan and Bolivia intend to strengthen mutually beneficial cooperation. Kazakh Foreign Minister Kairat Abdrakhmanov and Bolivian Minister of Foreign Affairs Fernando Huanacuni Mamani discussed these prospects in Astana. Currently, the volume of trade between the states is low. Diplomatic representatives of both countries will solve this issue. During the negotiations, the parties, which are also non-permanent members of the UN Security Council, discussed the organization’s agenda. As Kairat Abdrakhmanov noted, Bolivia supports Nursultan Nazarbayev's initiatives aimed at creating a nuclear-free world.
KAIRAT ABDRAKHMANOV, KAZAKH FOREIGN MINISTER:
- Together, we are realizing the Kazakh initiatives like strengthening of peace and stability in Africa, the challenges that the UN Security Council deals with on daily basis. As part of his visit, he was met by Kazakh Prime Minister Bakhytzhan Sagintayev. The Bolivian minister handed over an invitation to the Kazakh leadership to participate in the 4th summit of the leaders and government heads as well as exporters, which is scheduled for November this year in Bolivia.
FERNANDO HUANACUNI MAMANI, BOLIVIAN MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS:
- We see many nuances that bring Bolivia and Kazakhstan closer together since our views on the international agenda coincide on many issues. We can adopt Kazakhstan’s experience. Some of them are the diplomatic school and institutes, as well as technological developments. Bolivia is open to global cooperation.
