During the meeting, the Leader of Nation has stressed the importance of maintaining and further developing friendly relations between the two states.

- It is great you have arrived here. We have had a  tough time. All these years, we have learned a lot from each other. At present the world is changing. In such a situation, it is significant to maintain the results achieved during this time. I have the greatest respect for you for what you have done for Belarus and for your human qualities. And I remain your reliable friend, said Nursultan Nazarbayev.

In turn, Alexander Lukashenko has noted the crucial role of the First President of Kazakhstan in strengthening cooperation within the framework of regional integration associations.

- A general proposal has been received for you, as the Honorary Chairman of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council, to take part in the Council’s session in St. Petersburg, where we will outline future prospects. Fate and history predetermined Kazakhstan, Belarus and Russia to be the core of this integration in the post-Soviet space. And Kazakhstan represented by you has always been the initiator of such integration. Therefore, we shouldn’t slow down, said the President of Belarus.
