Ambassador of Kazakhstan in Doha…Nazarbayev & the Father Amir is a model of greatness

Historically the modern states Kazakhstan and Qatar were parts of the global Muslim Umma spanning the territory from the North Africa to the Central Asia and so many other regions of the world. There unfortunately only rare number of documented sources left about the interaction of the Gulf area and the Middle Asia during the middle age and great times of the so called Muslim renaissance between the VIII and XIII centuries, but at the same time based on the proven archives of the main libraries in the Middle East, China and also Europe and others, there indeed were very unique and active relations of our two nations ancients of the old Silk road, whose grandsons and granddaughters later one inherited the great states of Kazakhs and Qataris and after so many centuries as these countries and their people gone through the routes of the historical changes of the past millennium handed over to the current statehoods of us and we are lucky and proud always to hold our flags high in the blue heaven.
In the beginning of the 90s of the XX century the two brotherly nations the Kazakhs and the Qataris found each other on the realities of our time again after the geopolitical games and historical hurricanes of the past, which endured hundreds of years.
That time in the first epochal years of 90s two experienced and powerful great sons of their nations established the sisterly relations and the First President Elbasy HE Nursultan Nazarbayev together with His Highness Father Amir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani brought the two countries close to each other as the State of Qatar was already independent since its gained the statehood in 1971 and Kazakhstan just newly established its Republic in 1991.
July 1st, 1993 with a Joint Communiqué of establishing Diplomatic Relations. Based on this first step the Kazakh Embassy in Doha opened up in May 2007. After that the next year the Qatari Embassy in Kazakhstan resumed its duties. May 26-27, 1997, first steps for cooperation between the two countries were undertaken during the official visit to the State of Qatar by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan and the return visit on April 18-19, 1998 by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Qatar in Almaty.
These two remarkable steps created the best conditions for the relations at the highest level, which were marked by a number of mutual visits of the heads of two states, so May 23-25, 1998, the first official visit of HE Nazarbayev to Qatar took place as part of a tour in the Gulf region and so many important agreements were signed during his stay in Doha. On his turn HH Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani paid his first official visit to Kazakhstan April 20-22, 1999 and granted that time young capital of the country with the decision to build an unique mosque and Islamic centre, which after years was unveiled in 2005 with the symbolically meaning name ‘Noor Astana” as the word “Noor” stands in the orient languages for the bright light and became an very iconic symbol of the modern architecture of the city and also nowadays belongs to the most famous sightseeing and must see places of the town. Then after, March 10-11, 2007 HE Nazarbayev second time officially visited Qatar and March 4-5, 2008 he received Sheikh Hamad on HH’s second visit in Kazakhstan. Finally October 25-26, 2015 President Nazarbayev paid his third official visit to Qatar. Today the new Silk road is growing and
The two nations leaders of that time have been earned big respect and their merits in founding and deepening of the relations were recognized and honored by the highest awards of Kazakhstan the “Dostyk orden” (which means translated from Kazakh: “Friendship”) for Sheikh Hamad and the “Independence orden” of Qatar for the President Nazarbayev.
The new pages of the sisterly countries relations were written January 19, 2014 with the first official visit of HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani as Emir of Qatar to Kazakhstan. September 1, 2018, in the Kazakh capital the city of Nur Sultan the complex of a secondary school named after HH the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani was opened. This educational institution was sponsored by the Qatari Government.
During the years of the active policy making times of the First President Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev and the Father Amir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani the relations between Kazakhstan and Qatar grow stabile and dynamically, in common sense the both leaders reviewed the important issues of the political, economic and cultural as well the humanitarian agendas on bilateral and multilateral levels within the UN, Organization of Islamic Cooperation and many others, where they both played significant role.
The new phase of the relations between the two countries was launched March 20, 2019 as HH Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani sent congratulations to the new President of Kazakhstan HE Kassym-Jomart Tokayev on the occasion of taking the oath and office as the Head of State and expressed wishes for success and prosperity to the people of Kazakhstan and June 12 of the same year HH congratulated Kazakh President to the won elections and inauguration in the high office. After that, June 15, 2019 the both leaders met first time on the sidelines of the CICA Summit in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
The modern cooperation in all the spheres of the both countries are well flourishing and based on the milestones founded by our great rulers in the past the HE Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev and HH Father Amir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani.
