According to the Kazah minister, Great Britain is a key and reliable partner of Kazakhstan as well as one of the major trade and investment partners.

Our countries share a common desire to expand and deepen multifaceted action. We make efforts and confirm readiness for joint work in this direction, said Nurtleu.
