Minister's Blog

Dear friends,

Thank you for visiting our official website and for interest you show to the activity of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Foreign policy of our country, which recently celebrated 25th anniversary of independence and 550 years of Kazakh Statehood, is traditionally based on principles of peacefulness, openness, pragmatism and multifaceted approach founded by the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan – Leader of Nation Nursultan Nazarbayev.

The activity of the Foreign service of independent Kazakhstan is aimed at establishing equal relations with our entire partners, close and distant, standing up for national interests internationally and protecting interests of our citizens abroad, attracting foreign direct investments, ensuring the best external conditions to implement the “Kazakhstan – 2050" strategy, the “Nurly Zhol" New Economic Policy, “100 concrete steps" Plan of the Nation within Five Institutional Reforms. The MFA is also primarily focused on the task to further strengthen and improve foreign economic activities of our agency in accordance with instructions of the Head of State, to facilitate sustainable and dynamic development of Kazakh economy. We also have to implement the Sustainable Development Goals adopted at the level of the UN.

Indeed, special significance for national diplomacy is given to the membership of Kazakhstan in the United Nations Security Council for 2017-2018. Tremendous confidence vested by the UN member-states to us is a vivid illustration of successes of independent development of our country, attaching a renommee and status of a responsible citizen of the world, respected and equitable participant of international community in line with high standing of its Leader.

In this regard Ministry of Foreign Affairs is committed to deploy maximum efforts to perform its mandate responsibly and transparently and to make real and tangible contribution to international peace and security.

Along with traditional priorities in the work of the agency new tasks are standing before the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan in 2017, including successful hosting of the Expo 2017 International Specialized Exhibition in Astana themed “Future Energy," the Shanghai Cooperation Organization Summit and the first Summit in the history of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation on science and technologies.

Let us further make Kazakhstan and the world better and safer. Together.

With warmest regards,

Kairat Abdrakhmanov
