Kazakhstan Upbeat on Expanding Ties with Peru

LIMA – Kazakhstan sees great possibilities to expand trade and political links with Peru, the Central Asian nation’s deputy foreign minister said on Monday.

Despite the distance between them, Peru and Kazakhstan share “values, principles and visions” on international issues, Yerzhan Ashikbayev told EFE during an official visit to Lima.

He pointed to the “great potential” for greater bilateral trade and for enhanced cooperation between the two countries as they prepare to occupy non-permanent seats on the UN Security Council beginning Jan. 1.

“We had excellent bilateral and political consultations about our future interaction on the Security Council, with the same approaches to the Council’s agenda,” Ashikbayev said after meeting with senior officials at the Peruvian Foreign Ministry.

“It doesn’t matter that we are in different hemispheres, the visions of Peru and Kazakhstan are similar: open to dialogue and to political solutions ahead of imposition,” he said.

Both his country and Peru feel “equally responsible for the maintenance of peace and security in the world” and as members of the Security Council, they will be “partners in the world,” the Kazakh diplomat said.

In addition to high-level politics, his visit is about launching an agenda with “more substance and practical interest,” the deputy foreign minister said.

His schedule in Lima includes talks with the directors of Promperu, the Andean nation’s trade-promotion agency.

“Peru is a promising market and it’s also a promising exporter of food and of minerals in which Kazakhstan may be interested. I came with a list of products, an initial technical vision which could be developed,” Ashikbayev told EFE.

He highlighted prospects for bilateral collaboration in agriculture and mining.

Peru and Kazakhstan “are economies that are developing in a dynamic way” and can build connections “to reinforce each other in their growth,” Ashikbayev said. “We are in the initial steps of developing business-to-business contacts. The more we share information and the more we learn about firms and potentials in other countries, the greater the possibility of having successful results.”
