Astana, September 13, House of the Mazhilis. Today in the Mazhilis, the Speaker of the Chamber, Erlan Koshanov, met with the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Korea to Kazakhstan, Jo Tae-Ik. The parties discussed issues of strengthening relations between the two countries.
The Mazhilis speaker noted that the Republic of Korea is one of the main political and economic partners of Kazakhstan in Asia. Last year marked 30 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations between our countries.
“Over these years, Kazakhstan and Korea have achieved great heights in strengthening their multifaceted partnership. This is, first of all, the result of the work of the leaders of our countries. Following the state visit of President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev to Korea in 2021, the parties expanded their strategic partnership. At the end of this week, I will make an official visit to the Republic of Korea at the invitation of the President of the National Assembly, my colleague Mr. Kim Jin Pyo. The main purpose of this visit is to continue the agreements between the heads of the two countries at the parliamentary level. Our delegation will also take part in the First Conference of Speakers of Parliaments “Central Asia - Republic of Korea”, organized at the initiative of Korea,” Erlan Koshanov said.
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Korea to Kazakhstan Jo Tae-ik wished the Chairman of the Mazhilis a successful visit to Korea and expressed confidence that the meetings in Seoul will serve the development of inter-parliamentary relations between friendly countries.
“As you know, our country was a very poor state in the 1950s and rose to its feet thanks to industry and trade. Today it plays the role of a bridge between developing and developed countries. I think your visit to Korea is very timely. During the visit, meetings are planned with the Prime Minister of Korea and the Speaker of Parliament,” Jo Tae-Ik said.
The parties agreed to further strengthen cooperation at the level of parliamentary friendship groups and specialized committees.
