Minister of Foreign Affairs Pays Courtesy Call on President of Kazakhstan
1. On October 16, Minister of Foreign Affairs Kang Kyung-wha attended the 12th Korea-Central Asia Cooperation Forum held in Nur-Sultan, the capital of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and paid a courtesy call on President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev.
° Minister Kang highlighted the importance of cooperation with Kazakhstan, the Republic of Korea (ROK)’s top trading and investment partner in Central Asia as well as a core partner of its New Northern Policy. She went on to voice hope that bilateral cooperation would continue to increase mainly in the diverse areas discussed by the Presidents of the two countries during President Moon Jae-in’s state visit to Kazakhstan in April 2019.
° President Tokayev took note of the dynamic
development of the ROK-Kazakhstan relations in various sectors, including
economy, trade, culture and people-to-people exchanges. He expressed hope that the
two countries would further step up substantive bilateral cooperation by
faithfully implementing the “Fresh Wind,” a new economic cooperation program
adopted during President Moon Jae-in’s state visit to Kazakhstan in April.
