Thank you very much Prime Minister (Massimov), Minister (Idrissov). Thank you first of all for having invited me and hosted me today in Astana for two things that to me are extremely important.

One is the very intense and fruitful day of meetings we have had with all our friends and colleagues from the other Central Asian republics to work concretely on our joint regional cooperation.
