Lukashenka sends birthday greetings to Kazakh president


Alyaksandr Lukashenka has sent birthday greetings to Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev.

“Over the past years we managed, through joint efforts, to make progress on a number of mutually beneficial areas,” Mr. Lukashenka says in his message. “Much has been done to implement integration transformations. The expectations of an increase in the efficiency of the economies and the welfare of the citizens of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia are pinned on the further successful functioning of the ‘troika’.”

“I am certain that our mutually beneficial and consistent policy to strengthen our strategic partnership will make it possible to give a new impetus to multidimensional cooperation between both countries,” he says.

Mr. Nazarbayev turned 73 on July 6. He has been Kazakhstan’s president since April 1990. //BelaPAN
