French President Francois Hollande's visit to Kazakhstan is expected next year, French Ambassador to Kazakhstan Jean-Charles Bertone told Trend on Tuesday.
"The visit of our leader to Kazakhstan is planned for next year. The preliminary agreement has already been reached," the ambassador noted.

"Francois Hollande has accepted the invitation with great pleasure. I am looking forward to determination of specific date of the visit," the ambassador stated.
In his words, international situation and some regional issues, such as situation in Afghanistan, which are directly related with the countries will be a subject to discussion during the meeting.
He said, relations between EU and Kazakhstan as well as bilateral relations of France and Kazakhstan are going to be discussed.
According to the ambassador, the change in country leadership will not affect the previously signed high level agreements between the countries.
"Francois Hollande's wish to support and develop further relations with Kazakhstan is obvious. Not only agreements and projects, signed and initiated during Sarkozy presidency will remain in force, the new projects will be launched in following weeks and months," Bertone noted.
