Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan are united not only by geographical location, but also by cultural and historical ties that date back to ancient times. After gaining independence, diplomatic relations between the countries have become even stronger, as evidenced by the real results of cooperation.

The priority areas of cooperation between the two fraternal republics are: energy, transit and transport, trade and economy, agriculture, and the investment sector.

The construction of a road from Turkmenistan to the border of Kazakhstan and the construction of a bridge across the Garabogazgol Bay are in the future.

The new capital is the country's calling card

The initiative of Nursultan Nazarbayev transformed the regional center into the modern metropolitan metropolis Nur-Sultan (formerly Astana). A year after the international presentation, in 1999, the capital of the Republic received the title "City of Peace" by the decision of UNESCO for the rapid achievement of significant results in development.
