Roman Vassilenko presented his credentials to President of Slovakia Zuzana Caputova as the first Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Kazakhstan to this country with a residence in Bratislava, reports with reference to the press service of the Foreign Affairs Ministry.

During the conversation, Vassilenko noted the interest of President Kassym Jomart Tokayev and, in general, the leadership of Kazakhstan in the development of comprehensive mutually beneficial cooperation with Slovakia, as evidenced by the opening of the country’s embassy in Bratislava last year.

It was noted that a significant and far from fully utilized potential for cooperation between the two countries lies in trade, economic, cultural and humanitarian cooperation and strengthening of contacts between people. Currently, more than 40 companies with Slovak participation are operating in Kazakhstan. The two states collaborate in the fields of engineering, defense industry, energy, IT, pharmaceuticals, agricultural processing and others. The presence of favorable prospects for enhancing cooperation between the two countries was also emphasized in the light of the full entry into force of the Agreement on Enhanced Partnership and Cooperation between Kazakhstan and the European Union and its member states on March 1.

In turn, Zuzana Caputova, noting the positive significance of opening the Kazakh Embassy in Bratislava, expressed her hope that the dynamics of collaboration between our countries will continue to intensify.

The parties focused on the efforts of the two states aimed at combating climate change and developing alternative energy. In light of commitments made by Bratislava to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, the Head of the Slovak state accepted with interest the information on the work being carried out in Kazakhstan to develop solar, wind and other types of alternative energy aimed at accomplishing a goal of providing 50 percent of the country’s energy demand by 2050.

At the end of the conversation Zuzana Caputova conveyed the best wishes to the leadership and people of Kazakhstan.
