The leader of the nation invites his Kazakhstan colleague to see the territory of one of the horseracing centres largest in the country where there are all conditions for cultivation, education and breeding of Akhal Teke horses, their training, and conduction of representative tournaments. As "heavenly" racers, being the national property and pride of Turkmen people, personify the beauty and harmony standard born in unison with nature by creative human genius. During the present epoch, the noble Akhal Teke racer is a symbol of modern Turkmenistan - image of continuity of historical experience, triumph of high ideals, spiritualised work and vigorous aiming at development.

Here Presidents Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and Kassym-Jomart Tokaev from a special observation point watched exercises of elite Akhal Teke racers.

One after another, on the arena, magnificent Akhal Teke racers appear and the detailed information on each horse, its family tree, qualities, advantages and achievements is given.

For this reason, a special role in the interstate dialogue is attached to interaction in the cultural-humanitarian sphere.

Predictably, within the limits of the present Ashkhabad summit talks a wide spectrum of issues, representing mutual interest will be discussed, and also the package of the important bilateral documents aimed at intensification of multidimensional cooperation, further strengthening of trust and mutual understanding between two fraternal people and states will be signed. The forthcoming high-level meeting is urged to promote optimum realisation of available great potential of partnership in all its spheres, to bring out to the new actual directions of interaction counting upon long-term prospect.
