Li Keqiang Meets with President Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan

On the evening of November 3, 2016 local time, Premier Li Keqiang met at the Presidential Palace in Astana with President Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan.

Li Keqiang first conveyed President Xi Jinping's sincere greetings to President Nursultan Nazarbayev. Li Keqiang said that China and Kazakhstan are neighbors as well as sincere and friendly strategic partners. During the G20 Hangzhou Summit this September, President Xi Jinping exchanged in-depth views with you on promoting the development of bilateral relations. Both sides should continue to advance the implementation of consensus reached by the two heads of state, so as to constantly write a new chapter of China-Kazakhstan friendly cooperation.

Li Keqiang pointed out that China and Kazakhstan share strong economic complementarities and broad prospects in mutually beneficial cooperation. China stands ready to work with Kazakhstan to comprehensively deepen cooperation in production capacity, push the construction of key projects for new achievements, expand cooperation in energy, connectivity, deep processing of agricultural products and other areas, enhance people-to-people and cultural exchanges, and strengthen collaboration within frameworks including the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) as well as communication and coordination in international and regional affairs, so as to push forward the common development of both countries and safeguard regional peace and stability.

Nursultan Nazarbayev expressed that Kazakhstan and China are friendly neighbors and bilateral relations serve as a model of friendly cooperation among countries. The initiative of launching production capacity cooperation proposed by Premier Li Keqiang during his visit to Kazakhstan two years ago has now made remarkable progress. Kazakhstan is willing to, together with China, comprehensively deepen cooperation in production capacity, promote the implementation of more projects, expand cooperation in energy, minerals, agriculture, scientific and technological innovation and other fields, improve the level of bilateral trade as well as carry out better cooperation within the SCO and other multilateral frameworks.
