Islamabad, 12 April 2022 (TDI): Lieutenant General Khussainov Marat Rakhimovich, First Deputy Defence Minister and Chief of General Staff Armed Forces of the Republic of Kazakhstan met with Chief of the Naval Staff Admiral Muhammad Amjad Khan Niazi at Naval Headquarters in Islamabad. The Naval Chief greeted the dignitary upon his arrival at the Naval Headquarters.

The recent visit of Kazakhstan’s First Deputy Defence Minister and Chief of General Staff Armed Forces would strengthen strategic cooperation between the Armed Forces of both Pakistan and Kazakhstan.

General Rakhimovich also met the President and the Air-Chief in separate meetings.

Pakistan-Kazakhstan relations:  

The bilateral ties between the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan are referred to as Kazakhstan–Pakistan relations. When Kazakhstan gained independence in 1991, Pakistan was one of the first few nations to recognize it. In 1992, during an official visit of  Kazak President Nursultan Nazarbayev to Pakistan, the two countries established diplomatic ties. Pakistan and Kazakhstan have friendly ties based on a shared perspective on global concerns, shared understanding, Islamic brotherhood, and respect toward one another.

Central Asia, notably Kazakhstan, has a significant effect on modern-day Pakistan due to historical relationships. Many Kazakhs were forced to move to India between 1920 and 1939 as a result of Soviet brutality.  Responding, the All India Muslim League’s Central Council, the party’s supreme decision-making authority, approved a resolution in February 1942, in Delhi, under the founder and leader of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah in which the party conveyed genuine concern about the circumstances of Kazakh migrants and requested that the administration make proper accommodations and arrangements for them. As a result, the migrants were able to settle safely in India’s northwest regions.
