Kazakhstan and France strengthen bilateral cooperation

Kazakhstan and France have discussed the development of bilateral relations, the Senate of the Kazakh Parliament said on Friday.

The importance of cooperation between two countries at the level of high representative bodies was stressed during Senate Committee Secretary on international relations, defence and security Adil Akhmetov’s meeting with director of the department on continental Europe under the French Foreign Ministry Eric Fournier.

Fournier said that Kazakh president Nursultan Nazarbayev plans to visit France in late October. The visit will give an impetus to further strengthening of Kazakh -French strategic cooperation.
A group on cooperation with French MPs operates in Senate of the Kazakh Parliament.

Akhmetov added that the potential of these groups has not been fully used. Kazakh and French MPs have great opportunities to exchange experience in legislation.
