We have elevated our cooperation to the enhanced strategic partnership level with the joint memorandum we have just signed.

In our meetings, we have agreed to make more use of the big potential for cooperation in a wide range of areas from transportation to mutual investments, defense industry to energy, education and culture. We have also exchanged views on regional and international issues. We have particularly discussed the regional and global effects of the situation in Ukraine.

Stating that Turkey would continue to encourage Turkish companies to invest more in the Kazakhstan under the leadership of President Tokayev, President Erdoğan

Toqaev said on May 11 that his visit opened opportunities "for further strengthening cooperation in political, trade, economic, investment, cultural, military, and other areas."
