Kazakhstan and Russia on their way to joint air defence system
The legal framework of the joint air defence system of Kazakhstan and Russia has been completed, and its practical implementation has commenced, Tengrinews reports citing RIA Novosti.
Kazakhstan Minister of Defence Imangali Tasmagambetov met with his Russian counterpart Sergei Shoigu on April 16 within the framework of the International Security Conference in Moscow, Russia that brought together 400 representatives of 70 countries, including 15 ministers of defence and representatives of six international organisations on April 16-17.
He added that the commander of the system who will be selected jointly by Kazakhstan and Russia, had not been appointed, but the candidate for the position had been approved by the Russian President Vladimir Putin and that President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev would soon announce his decision. “Therefore, the system virtually enters into force in practice,” Tasmagambetov said.
