The work of the Kazakh-Russian expert council is planned to be resumed in the near future

MOSCOW. KAZINFORM – There is a need to restore the work of the Kazakh-Russian Expert Council. Director of the Kazakhstan Institute for Strategic Studies (KISS) under the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Yerkin Tukumov announced this on Thursday during an international scientific and practical conference dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation, Kazinform’s own correspondent reports.

The discussion with the participation of Kazakh and Russian representatives of government agencies and the expert community took place at the site of the Moscow State Institute of International Relations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.

In his speech, the director of KazISS noted that the 30-year stage of progressive development of bilateral relations opens a new page in the history of Kazakhstan and Russia.

“The relationship between Kazakhstan and Russia is an important factor shaping the political and economic reality throughout the Eurasian continent,” said Yerkin Tukumov. “Kazakhstan is interested in a strong Russia as a world power, just as Russia is interested in a strong and prosperous Kazakhstan.”

In his opinion, current trends dictate the need to deepen the expert dialogue between countries, thus paving the way for a second path of diplomacy. But now it is important to bring this work to the systemic level, so that it is not just an exchange of research, but also a barrier to fakes and stereotypes that are negatively projected on bilateral relations.

According to Yerkin Tukumov, at present KazISS together with the Institute of World Economy and International Relations of the Russian Academy of Sciences is working on an initiative to restore the work of the Kazakh-Russian expert council.

“We invite everyone to this structure in order to conduct a dialogue at the system level. We will invite participants not only from the capitals, Moscow and Astana, but also from the regions. We need the point of view of different parties in order to form a more in-depth agenda that would reflect the interests of the regions of Kazakhstan and Russia,” Yerkin Tukumov informed.

During the conference, the participants noted that relations between Kazakhstan and Russia continue to develop dynamically in all areas. There is sufficient potential to expand interaction at the level of government agencies and the expert community. In general, the expected synergistic effect of combining common efforts will eliminate the remaining problems and reach a new level of strategic partnership.
