The leader of the nation invites his Kazakhstan colleague to see the territory of one of the horseracing centres largest in the country where there are all conditions for cultivation, education and breeding of Akhal Teke horses, their training, and conduction of representative tournaments. As "heavenly" racers, being the national property and pride of Turkmen people, personify the beauty and harmony standard born in unison with nature by creative human genius. During the present epoch, the noble Akhal Teke racer is a symbol of modern Turkmenistan - image of continuity of historical experience, triumph of high ideals, spiritualised work and vigorous aiming at development.
Here Presidents Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and Kassym-Jomart Tokaev from a special observation point watched exercises of elite Akhal Teke racers.
One after another, on the arena, magnificent Akhal Teke racers appear and the detailed information on each horse, its family tree, qualities, advantages and achievements is given. Fine constitution, easy gait, graceful movements and an amazing exterior of the best representatives of breed, really heavenly, inspiring beauty of horses leave nobody indifferent.

The honoured guest expressed warm gratitude for the respect shown for the people of Kazakhstan and gifts, especially having noted that interstate relations thanks to efforts of the President of Turkmenistan have a long-term character and develop for the benefit of two people.
The regular Turkmen-Kazakhstan meeting to be held on October 25 in Ashkhabad at the highest levels will become a new major landmark in the history of mutual relations based on centuries-old unshakable traditions of friendship, good neighbourhood and fruitful partnership.
Leaders of the brotherly states invariably confirm readiness of the parties for deepening of the established productive political dialogue, strengthening of economic and cultural-humanitarian links, defining concrete steps on steady promotion of interaction, built on parity, mutually beneficial basis. So, in August this year in Avaza national tourist zone within the limits of the Consultative meeting of heads of the states of Central Asia negotiations of Presidents Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and Kassym-Jomart Tokaev were held and in their course adherence of two countries to rise of constructive relations in all directions was once again ascertained.
The great value is given to the activity of the Intergovernmental Turkmen-Kazakhstan commission on economic, scientific, technical, and cultural cooperation during meetings of which perspective vectors of bilateral partnership are defined.
Our countries are connected by both the economic partnership developing today in a number of key directions, and centuries-old historical bonds of the Turkmen and Kazakhstan people. For this reason, a special role in the interstate dialogue is attached to interaction in the cultural-humanitarian sphere.
Predictably, within the limits of the present Ashkhabad summit talks a wide spectrum of issues, representing mutual interest will be discussed, and also the package of the important bilateral documents aimed at intensification of multidimensional cooperation, further strengthening of trust and mutual understanding between two fraternal people and states will be signed. The forthcoming high-level meeting is urged to promote optimum realisation of available great potential of partnership in all its spheres, to bring out to the new actual directions of interaction counting upon long-term prospect.
