The message reads, in part:
“The years of your presidency saw the establishment of the modern Kazakhstani state. Under your leadership, the republic achieved impressive economic and social progress, as well as success in science and technology and other fields, and built a reputation in the world arena.
It is difficult to overstate your personal contribution to the Russia-Kazakhstan strategic partnership and alliance, as well as to the mutually beneficial integration processes in the post-Soviet space and constructive cooperation within the EAEU, CSTO, CIS, SCO and other multilateral associations.
I have no doubt that your enormous experience as a statesman, vast knowledge, political wisdom and foresight will continue to be in demand both in Kazakhstan and in international affairs.
I sincerely value our good relations and look forward to continuing our friendly interactions. I wish you good health, longevity, happiness, high spirits and success.”
