We have signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Kazakhstan yesterday (Thursday). Prior to this agreement, we acted together as strategic partners, Gul said.
We are two brotherly countries. We are two separate parts of the same nation. The home of our forefathers is Kazakhstan. We have never forgotten the lands of our forefathers. I witnessed great hospitality during my two separate visits to Kazakhstan, Gul indicated.
It is a reality that Kazakhstan has become the shining star of Asia. Kazakhstan has succeeded in establishing national unity, Gul said.
When I look at the participants of the Turkish-Kazakh Business and Investment Forum, I see representatives of Turkish companies who have well succeeded abroad. Our businessmen would like to work with their Kazakh counterparts in Turkey, Kazakhstan and third countries, Gul stressed.
