He then spoke of the declaration made by Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, President of Kazakhstan, on historic and comprehensive political reforms, underlining their goal to support democracy by increasing the powers of the country’s government and parliament and encouraging fair and free political competition.

He also spoke of Tokayev’s pledge to exert all possible efforts to maintain the sovereignty and independence of Kazakhstan and achieve its prosperity, adding that the foundations of these new reforms include strengthening democracy, ensuring accountability and achieving sustainable governance.
