– In a public holiday and birthday of President, Leader of the Nation Nursultan Nazarbayev we would like to wish the most important thing – peace and friendship. They have no value, without them all is meaningless. Astana climbed up by joint efforts of our entire country. Every town, every village gave something to Astana, and Semey not remained not aloof from the common cause. Kazakhs have a national idea – “Mengіlіk yel,” we know where to go. We are led by strong and respected leader in the world community. If we remember the covenants of ancestors – to be together, we can accomplish all. Even that now seems distant and elusive, is subject to the people for whom the greatest wealth is not the “I” but “we.”
