Turkish President to Visit

    Turkey’s President Abdullah Gul will be in Kazakhstan from July 4 to 6 to help celebrate President Nursultan Nazarbayev’s birthday and the 13th anniversary of the founding of the capital, Astana.
    In addition to meeting with Nazarbayev, Gul will huddle with leaders of several countries in the region who also will be in Astana to mark Nazarbayev’s birthday, according to businessneweurope.eu.
    Turkey and Kazakhstan have had cordial relations in recent years.
    A sign of that was Turkey’s recent decision to erect a statue to Nazarbayev in its capital of Ankara.
