Congratulations of the First President of Kazakhstan – Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev on Defender of the Fatherland Day
I congratulate you on Defender of the Fatherland Day.
For the years of independence, the Armed Forces of Kazakhstan have become the guarantee of stability for the state, its territorial integrity and military security.
We have always accorded a high priority to the development of the army, the enhancement of its defense capabilities and the comprehensive support of military service members.
As a result, serving in the army has been considered again an important and responsible task for strong-willed men. Duty, honour and service to the Motherland have regained their true meaning again. That is why a man in the military uniform has become an example of high responsibility and true patriotism.
Since the signing of the Decree on the establishment of the Armed Forces of Kazakhstan and until the formation of an effective system of security, we have come a long way.
Today Kazakhstan has a powerful and efficient army, capable to protect our independence, the greatest value of our country.
I congratulate defenders of the Fatherland and all Kazakhstanis on the holiday! I wish all of you strong health, peace and prosperity!
