Five-member Kazakh team in Delhi to boost Parliament ties

A five-member Kazakh parliamentary delegation is in Delhi to boost legislative ties with India.

New Delhi, May 10 : A five-member Kazakh parliamentary delegation is in Delhi to boost legislative ties with India.

The team, led by Serik Abdrakhmanov, the Chairman of the Kazakh Parliament's Committee for International Affairs, Defence and Security, arrived in the capital on Wednesday, and will call on their Indian counterparts on Friday.

At a reception hosted for the visiting delegation by the Embassy of Kazakhstan, Abdrakhmanov said that he was primarily in New Delhi to give a fresh boost to the already warm Indo-Kazakh ties, especially at the legislative level.

He said that in recent years, Kazakh-India cooperation was experiencing a rapid upsurge, and in a sense, both countries were rediscovering each other and exploring areas where they could mutually cooperate.

He said that his team and he had come to New Delhi from Afghanistan, and was of the view that unless the security situation stabilises in Afghanistan, expansion of regional trade between Central and South Asia would continue to remain a difficult and distant dream.

Earlier, Dr. Kairat Umarov, Ambassador of Kazakhstan to India, said ties between the two countries were robust, and added that this could be ascertained by the fact the last year, two-way trade between the two countries had increased by 74 percent and reached 210 million dollars.

He further went on to say that India's trade with Kazakhstan accounted for over half of its trade with the whole of Central Asia, making Kazakhstan India's largest trading partner in Central Asia.

Both countries possessed the potential to cooperate in the fields of information technology, energy, science and technology, and other sectors too, Umarov said.

Apart from Abdrakhmanov, the other members of the Kazakh delegation are Valeriy Doskalov, MP, Committee for Legislation and Judicial and Legal Reforms, Mikhail Troshihin, MP, Committee for Agrarian Issues, Baybol Utepbaeve, MP, Committee for Environment Issues and Nature Use and Darhan Kusherbaev, Chief Protocol Officer.
