New Delhi: External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar congratulated Kazakhstan's Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister, Murat Nurtleu, on the nation's Republic Day.

He also shared a video portraying the multifaceted strategic partnership between India and Kazakhstan.

Taking to his official handle on social media platform X, Jaishankar posted, "Congratulations to DPM and FM Murat Nurtleu and the Government and the friendly people of Kazakhstan on their Republic Day. Here's a look at our multifaceted strategic partnership."

Earlier, on Wednesday, Kazakhstan's ambassador to India, Nurlan Zhalgasbayev, addressed a round table in New Delhi, saying that his country was looking forward to hosting Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the SCO Summit in Astana next year.

The envoy added that Kazakhstan will strive to raise the level of the strategic partnership between India and Kazakhstan.

"Kazakhstan will continue to strive to make the most of every opportunity to raise the strategic partnership (with India) to an even higher level and give a new meaning to the bilateral ties for the sake of friendship and prosperity of our people," Zhalgasbayev said at the conference.

Relations between India and Kazakhstan are ancient and historical, dating back more than 2,000 years, the Ministry of External Affairs said, adding that there has been a constant and regular flow of trade in goods and, more importantly, an exchange of ideas and cultural influences.

The propagation of Buddhism from India to Central Asia and Sufi ideas from Central Asia to India are two such examples, the MEA noted.
