International recognition

Today, the uniqueness of the model of social peace and harmony built in Kazakhstan is spoken around the world, calling it the “Kazakhstani Way” or the “Nazarbayev Model”. This experience is of great interest to politicians and scientists around the world. The ideas and initiatives of the President of Kazakhstan are the subject of in-depth research, leading mass media speak and write about them.

President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin

Nursultan Abishevich has been in politics for a long time, he got into politics from Soviet times. And the first thing that surprised me and surprises so far is that he turned out to be a very modern person ... How does he have the feeling of the modern world?

Recently I discovered another quality of Nursultan Abishevich. In certain situations, he can be a sentimental person. This means that he has not lost his human qualities. And it means a lot for me, it is a very good characterization of a person. He is decent and honest!

Discussing a problem with him, I have fixed it many times: he always thinks about how this will affect the ordinary person. How people will feel this in their lives, in the lives of their families. Actually, he shirks it upon himself and his loved ones. He is part of his people.

For Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev is a historically unique figure. After all, Kazakhs never had a state in the form which the state structure is now formed now. And he is not just the first President of Kazakhstan. He is the creator of Kazakh, Kazakhstan statehood. In this sense, he has a unique historical role

President of the United States Barack Obama (2009-2017)

President Nazarbayev is one of the world’s exemplary leaders in non-proliferation and nuclear safety. Kazakhstan is an excellent example of how a country can abandon nuclear weapon and achieve greater security and economic prosperity.
Having renounced nuclear weapon, Kazakhstan people received security guarantees from all states in the region, and this helped make Kazakhstan one of the most stable countries in the region.

Having renounced nuclear weapon, Kazakhstan turned from a country that could be isolated, into a country that is open to the international economy and attracts foreign capital.

At the same time, under the leadership of Nursultan Nazarbayev, Kazakhstan has achieved significant success. For example, he carried out the delimitation of the state border with neighboring Russia, developing the energy industry. Today, Kazakhstan is a regional leader. The whole Turkic world recognizes Nursultan Nazarbayev as its leader and highly appreciates his initiatives to unite fraternal Turkic peoples, study common history, and develop cultural ties. In this regard, I awarded President Nursultan Nazarbayev with Turkey’s highest state award.
