The established friendly relations between the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev and the king of Jordan Abdullah II are an example to follow and serve the interests of our two countries, Bakhyt Sultanov said in his speech. He expressed gratitude for the attention to the activities of the Kazakh leader: as you know, in 2010 one of the Central streets of the capital of Jordan was named after the President of Kazakhstan.
"We are grateful to all the ammans for the tribute to our Elbasy. We with his Excellency Mr. Shawareb visited the street Nursultan Nazarbayev and familiarized with its development. And here we open the street named in honor of the capital of Kazakhstan. It is symbolic that this happens in the year of the 20th anniversary of the young Astana. I am convinced that this will give a new impetus to the residents of our cities and countries to further rapprochement", - Sultanov said.

"Our peoples have exemplary relations and, of course, political friendship between our heads of state. Astana is the standard of the modern city and an example to follow.

We know that Amman is implementing a number of major reforms and projects in the field of transport, landscaping, construction and smart technologies, simplification and automation of administrative procedures and improvement of the business environment. Astana is also actively working in these areas. I am sure we have something to share with each other on these issues. We are ready to exchange experience and best practices", – said Sultanov.
