font size    

Chinese Vice President Zeng Qinghong attended the swearing-in ceremony of reelected Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev in Astana on Wednesday.

Nazarbayev won a landslide victory for another seven-year term by netting 91 percent of the votes in the presidential election in December last year.

Nazarbayev first became the country's president in 1991 and was reelected in 1999. Under his rule, Kazakhstan, with a population of 15 million, has gained eye-catching achievements in economy and social affairs.

Delegations from more than 70 countries attended Nazarbayev's inauguration, according to the Kazakh foreign ministry. Presidents attending the ceremony include Vladimir Putin of Russia, Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan and Viktor Yushchenko of Ukraine.

Zeng arrived in Astana for a four-day official visit to Kazakhstan and Nazarbayev's inauguration.

During his stay here, Zeng held talks with Nazarbayev on boosting bilateral cooperation. He also met Kazakh Prime Minister Daniyal Akhmetov, Chairman of Kazakhstan's Senate (upper house of parliament) N. Abykaev, Chairman of the Mazhlis (lower house) Ural Muhamedzanov, and Foreign Minister Kasymzhomart Kemelevich Tokayev.

The two sides exchanged views on bilateral relations as well as international and regional issues of common concern and reached broad consensus.

The Kazakhstani side spoke highly of Zeng's presence at Nazarbayev's inauguration, saying it is a testimony to the traditional good-neighborly relations between the two countries and an important step to consolidate their strategic partnership.

Relations between China and Kazakhstan have developed smoothly and rapidly since the two countries established diplomatic ties in 1992, featuring deep political mutual trust and close cooperation in economy, trade and energy cooperation.
