President of the Republic of Kazakhstan 
November 5, 2008 
Ak Orda, Astana 
 
Your Excellency, 
 
I congratulate you sincerely on behalf of the people of the Republic 
of Kazakhstan and myself for a convincing victory in your election 
as president of the United States of America. 
 
Relations between our countries began with large-scale cooperation 
in the sphere of nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation and 
developed to the level of a very important strategic partnership for 
stability and the development of democracy in Central Asia.  Our 
relations strengthened even more due to our joint efforts in the 
stabilization of Iraq and reconstruction of Afghanistan. 
 
We are grateful to the United States for its support of Kazakhstan's 
2010 chairmanship of the Organization for Security and Cooperation 
in Europe.  It proves our commitment to the principles spelled out 
in our "Charter on Democratic Partnership." 
 
The most important factor in our relations is the partnership 
designed to support private business and investment and the supply 
of energy resources to meet the demands of the expanding global 
market.  In the humanitarian sphere, we are united by common 
traditions of religious tolerance and interethnic accord. 
 
I believe that partnership relations between Kazakhstan and the 
United States based on friendship and mutual trust will further 
develop and strengthen the well-being of our peoples. 
 
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you good health and 
success in your responsible work, and wish peace, well-being, and 
prosperity to the people of the United States of America. 
 
With Best Regards, 
Nursultan Nazarbayev 
 
His Excellency Barak Obama 
President-elect of the United States of America 
Washington, DC
