Shimon Peres was progressive person of world scale: Nazarbayev
The Head of State has visited the Embassy where he laid flowers in memory of ex-President of Israel Shimon Peres and left a note in the book of condolences.
On behalf of all Kazakhstani people and himself, Nursultan Nazarbayev expressed deep condolences to the people of Israel in connection with the irretrievable loss.
“We have long-standing friendly relations. Shimon Peres was a remarkable man who dedicated all his life to the service of his people. He is considered to be a great president, and I’m sure his name will remain forever in the memory of Israel. He was a progressive person of the world scale. It is difficult to overestimate the importance of the contribution of Shimon Peres to the settlement of the Middle East conflict. His activities aimed at achieving and maintaining peace were deservedly appreciated by the world community. Much has been done for the development of our bilateral relations by him”, the President of Kazakhstan said.
In conclusion, the Head of State wished the Israeli people peace and prosperity.
