We have precise direction to the future, we are to enter 30 developed countries of the world, that means that we have to further develop the state, youth politics and honorably carry out duty.
Kuanysh Sultanov, Deputy of the Parliament RK:
- First, it is the day when we created our own state, not simple state, but recognized one in the whole world and the state with great perspectives. On this way we overcame so many obstacles, but one should not stop at the achieved, ahead of us are many tasks assigned to us by the Head of the state.
Congratulate you on the Day of Independence, wish wealth to your country and the Head of the state.
Danial Akhmetov, Akim of Eastern – Kazakhstan oblast:
- Independence – the result of high aspirations and steadfast honor directed to the freedom of Kazakh people. Independence – the source of historic achievements and invaluable wealth of Kazakhstan for 25 years! Thus, to save independence and transfer to the next generation is a sacred duty of each of us. Besides, Astana –a bright sample of benevolent beginnings of the Leader of Nation Nursultan Abishevich Nazarbayev.
Astana is not only the center of political, scientific and spiritual-cultural life of the country, but also the world center where are solved the global issues. The evidence to that serves the fact that Kazakhstan is the permanent member of the Council of Security of the UN. At the next upcoming international exhibition “EXPO-2017” the attention of the whole world will be compelled to our capital, and it is also connected with independence.
