Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet next Monday in Moscow with his Kazakh counterpart, Kasim Yomart Tokayev, who will make an official visit to Russia almost a week after being sworn in again as head of the country after the elections held on November 20.

Kremlin spokesman Dimitri Preskov has indicated that it will be Tokayev’s first visit abroad after being re-elected with more than 80 percent of the vote and a turnout of around 70 percent.

“It will be an important visit for bilateral relations between the two countries,” Peskov asserted, according to information from the Interfax news agency. Thus, he has asked not to pay attention to the comments of experts on relations between Russia and Kazakhstan.

“These opinions are irrelevant. They should not pay attention to them,” he stated before highlighting the “friendly alliance between the two countries”, which is “beneficial for both parties”.

The Kazakh authorities have confirmed the visit and have pointed out that both leaders plan to address electronically the participants of the Interregional Cooperation Forum to be held in the Russian city of Orenburg, in the southwest of the country, as reported by the newspaper ‘Kazpravda’.
