In a message to Kazakhstan’s President Nursultan Nazarbayev, Rouhani congratulated him and the government and nation of Kazakhstan on the occasion of the Central Asian country’s Independence Day.
He expressed the hope that friendly relations between the two countries would expand and deepen in all areas in line with the mutual interests of the two nations.
Iran’s chief executive also wished health and success for government and nation of Kazakhstan.
