“Speaking frankly, I do not see any idea which could complicate our relations. We have just talked about the cooperation with China. 90% of our trade turnover falls on national currencies. The same situation is with Kazakhstan, where this figure has reached almost 100%,” he said, emphasizing a good level of cooperation in humanitarian sector.
