Astana, The Gulf Observer: President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev has congratulated the nation on the country’s major holiday – the Republic Day, according to media reports.
“This is the day of revival of our centuries-long statehood, dating back to the period of Turkic khaganates, Golden Horde and Kazakh Khanate,” the Head of State said ahead of the awards ceremony in Akorda.
According to him, on this day the idea of freedom sought by Alash leaders turned into reality.
“33 years ago, historical justice triumphed with the adoption of the Declaration on State Sovereignty. This important document opened the way for Independent Kazakhstan,” he stressed.
