During the visit, the head of the Kazakh Government was received by the President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon. At the meeting, they discussed topical issues of bilateral trade and economic cooperation. Askar Mamin conveyed warm words of welcome on behalf of the First President – Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev and the Head of State of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev.
