By Ali Mustafayev – Trend:
Trade and economic cooperation is the basis of relations between Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan, the Kazakh Energy Minister Kanat Bozumbayev said during the 14th meeting of the intergovernmental commission for economic cooperation in Baku.
“Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between our countries, a constructive dialogue for solving topical issues has been dynamically developing,” the minister said.
Bozumbayev stressed the importance of Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev's visit to Azerbaijan in April, when a number of agreements were signed and the task was set to double the trade turnover between the two countries.
Cooperation between Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan in energy and transportation has great potential, the minister noted.
“I am confident today’s meeting will contribute to development of cooperation between Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan,” said Bozumbayev.
The minister also noted that the commission’s meeting will contribute to strengthening of bilateral relations and will help fulfill the tasks set by the Azerbaijani and Kazakh presidents.
