Yesterday, I was received by Head of State Kassym-Jomart Tokayev. A meeting took place with the chairmen of the parliament chambers. Today, I’m meeting with you in Turkestan. Kazakhstan has always taken a special place in our relations with the Turkic countries. Our ancestor Khoja Ahmed Yasawi was a unique person in the Islamic world. His works and noble heritage have become widespread worldwide. Followers of Yasawi’s teachings reached Türkiye and the Balkans. This unique cultural heritage binds our states, said Speaker of the Grand National Assembly of Türkiye Numan Kurtulmuş.
