- Thanks to all of you, our current meeting in the capital of Kazakhstan – Nur-Sultan allowed us to actively use the existing potential of parliamentary diplomacy to strengthen cooperation between our States. All the speeches at the plenary sessions and discussions have shown once again that this format of multilateral inter-parliamentary cooperation helps to solve the problem of strengthening political, economic and humanitarian ties and deepening integration processes on our continent. Therefore, we need to continue to actively use the potential of our legislative bodies for the development of dialogue, trust and partnership, said Nurlan Nigmatulin.

The result of the work was the Statement of the participants of the 4th meeting of the Speakers of the Eurasian Countries’ Parliaments.
- 25 years ago, the First President of the country – Yelbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev – launched the initiative of Eurasian integration. Over the years, having passed a number of stages of development, the initiative of the President was embodied in a number of important agreements and arrangements. And today at our forum, the parliamentarians of Europe and Asia, noting the exceptional role of the First President of Kazakhstan, in their Statement consolidated the historical contribution of Nursultan Nazarbayev as the author and initiator of the Eurasian idea, as well as a number of successful integration economic institutions in the Eurasian space. This is the evidence of international recognition of the merits of the President, the success of his strategic course, which all these years ensures the progressive movement of Kazakhstan forward.
The next 5th meeting of the Speakers of the Eurasian Countries’ Parliaments will be held in 2020 in Indonesia.
