First President Nursultan Nazarbayev is the founder of Kazakhstan’s statehood and our country's foreign policy.
A person of historical significance, an outstanding statesman and politician of a global scale, he has devoted his life to serving the people of Kazakhstan and advancing world peace.
Owing to the political wisdom and determination of Nursultan Nazarbayev, Kazakhstan’s relatively brief 28-year history as an independent nation has seen our country join the ranks of the world’s 50 most competitive economies, and today we are consistently moving towards meeting an even more ambitious goal - to become one of the world’s 30 most developed countries.
As noted by respected world leaders, Nursultan Nazarbayev is a world-class politician and diplomat, whose strategic vision has and continues to make a significant contribution to the strengthening of regional and global security and stability.
Driven by his commitment to peace, dialogue, and the search for mutually beneficial solutions, Kazakhstan’s balanced multi-vector foreign policy has been solidly successful, ensuring the state with favorable external conditions for its progressive development throughout the years of independence.
Nursultan Nazarbayev is the initiator of many integration and dialogue processes on the Eurasian continent. Chief among them are the establishment of the Eurasian Economic Union, the CICA, the SCO, and the Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions.
Elbasy is the recognized “global champion” of the highly complex non-proliferation and disarmament regimes. His foreign policy initiatives inspire many of his foreign counterparts.
Today our country has entered a new stage in its development, and its foreign policy, the foundations and main principles of which were laid by Elbasy, is being developed and strengthened by our President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev.
The staff of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan cordially congratulates dear Nursultan Nazarbayev on his birthday and sincerely wishes the Number One Diplomat good health and well-being, a long life, inexhaustible energy and personal happiness!
