Congratulatory Message of the Turkic Council Secretary General on the occasion of the Independence Day of the Republic of Kazakhstan;

On behalf of the Turkic Council and my own, I would like to convey my heartfelt congratulations on the occasion of the 16th December, the Independence Day of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Kazakhstan has made enormous progress throughout its great history. Over the past years, the Kazakh people united around the core values of peace, harmony and human dignity complemented by strong leadership and wise policies of Elbashi Nursultan Nazarbayev.

On the other hand, the profound vision of President Nazarbayev inspired the idea of unity in the Turkic World preparing the groundwork for concrete undertakings to achieve this goal through the activities of the Turkic Council.

Taking this opportunity, I would like to celebrate once again the Independence Day of the Republic of Kazakhstan and wish peace, prosperity and happiness to the brotherly people of Kazakhstan and the entire Turkic World.

Baghdad Amreyev
Secretary General of the Turkic Council
