The tenth anniversary summit of the Organization of Turkic States (OTS) will be held in Turkestan in October 2023, President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev said on Friday during the OTS summit in Ankara.
"I invite you to attend the tenth anniversary summit of the OTS, which will be held in October this year in the holy city of Turkestan. Kazakhstan will also take over the chairmanship of the Organization of Turkic States this fall. We plan to hold a number of significant events during this period," Tokayev said.
The president of Kazakhstan noted that there is a complicated geopolitical and economic situation in the world right now. "Under these conditions it is very important to strengthen cooperation of the Turkic world. By doing so, our organization demonstrates that it has taken its rightful place in the international arena. Our countries need to bring political, economic and cultural cooperation to a new level. This is one of the priorities of Kazakhstan's foreign policy," Tokayev explained.
