ASTANA – Ukraine's Regions Party and the ruling party in Kazakhstan, Nur Otan, have agreed to cooperate.
An Interfax-Ukraine reporter said that a cooperation agreement was signed in Astana on Thursday in the presence of Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, Regions Party deputy head Leonid Kozhara and First Deputy Chairman of the Nur Otan People's Democratic Party Nurlan Nigmatulin.
Before signing the document, Azarov noted that the Regions Party "has taken the path of the expansion of international contacts."
"We have outgrown our former limits, when the Regions Party was exclusively engaged in internal party affairs," he said.
