Relacje Turcji z Kazachstanem: przegląd wzajemnych stosunków od upadku ZSRR

Languages of publication



Stosunki dwustronne Kazachstanu i Turcji zostały zapoczątkowane, po pierwsze, ze względu na więzi kulturowe, historyczne i braterskie pokrewień-stwo, co spowodowało, że Turcja stała się pierwszym krajem, który uznał niepodległość Kazachstanu. Po drugie, rozwój stosunków turecko-kazachskich jest oparty na tożsamości lub podobieństwie stanowisk w szerokim zakresie kwestii; co więcej, własne interesy obu krajów w systemie stosunków międzynarodowych również odegrały istotną rolę w umacnianiu stosunków dwustronnych.
The bilateral relations between Kazakhstan and Turkey have started, firstly due to deep cultural, historical ties, brotherhood kinship which caused Turkey to be the first country to recognise the independence of Kazakhstan. Secondly, the development of the Turkish-Kazakh relations is based on the identity or similarity of positions on a wide range of issues; moreover, both countries’ own interests in the international relations system also played a significant role in strengthening the bilateral relations.
