Kazakhstan, Dominican Republic Bolster Ties in Several Areas

ASTANA – Kazakhstan and the Dominican Republic signed cooperation agreements in the energy, tourism, justice and cultural areas as part of an effort to bolster bilateral relations, Dominican Foreign Minister Miguel Vargas told EFE on Tuesday.

“These agreements mark an advance in the deepening of our political and trade relations to increase our trade, cooperation and investment in a reciprocal manner,” Vargas said.

The Dominican foreign minister is on an official visit to this Central Asian nation, where he will attend the opening later this week of EXPO 2017 Astana, an international event focusing on renewable energy.

Vargas praised Kazakhstan for its vision regarding clean energy, noting that the Central Asian country had set the goal of having 50 percent of the energy it consumed come from renewable sources.

“I believe we have to congratulate the government for its willingness to create these conditions in terms of energy generation even though it’s a country that has all the conditions for extracting uranium, gas and petroleum,” Vargas said.

The Dominican diplomat also noted the importance of an agreement opening the way for the elimination of visas between the countries, adding that more than 4,500 Kazakhs traveled to the Caribbean country last year on direct flights from Russia.

“We are trying a process of doing away with visas for both countries and also eliminating the tourist card,” Vargas said.

The two countries also proposed creating an aviation agreement that will allow the Kazakh carrier to fly to the Caribbean via Spain.

Vargas said his visit to Kazakhstan also aimed to increase Latin America’s profile in the Central Asian nation, which has enjoyed strong growth.

“I believe that in addition to its beauty, we have to point out the organization it has and the development process that’s taking place, orderly development of the highest level,” Vargas said.
