Quote of the week

Nursultan Nazarbayev, Kazakhstan President:

- Please keep in mind that this building was built by Izmukhambetov, the Governor of Atyrau Oblast, in 8 months. Well, it (building) will stay and serve for the benefit of Atyrau.

(said half in jest during passing a baton of forum holding to the president of Bashkortostan)


This year Atyrau is hosting the 11th Forum of Russia-Kazakhstan Interregional Cooperation Forum attended by presidents of the two countries. On the occasion, the city has been cleaned up, roads repaired and fuel is available at every gas station. Do you think it will continue this way after the forum ends?
