Toqayev ratifies alliance agreement with Uzbekistan



On May 20, President Qosim-Jomart Toqayev of Kazakhstan signed the law ratifying the treaty on alliance relations between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, as reported by the White Horde press service.

The treaty aims to expand cooperation in various sectors, including political, trade-economic, transport, energy, cultural, and humanitarian fields. It also seeks to strengthen the ties between the parliaments, political parties, and public organizations of both nations.

Toqayev also ratified a law concerning the protocol amending the 2013 agreement between Kazakhstan and Russia on transporting Russian oil through Kazakhstan to China. This protocol ensures the long-term transportation of 10 million tons of Russian oil annually through Kazakhstan's main pipeline system.

Additionally, Toqayev signed the law ratifying the protocol on amendments to the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights. This protocol is designed to facilitate access to affordable medicines for countries in need.

The protocol allows World Trade Organization member countries to manufacture patented medicines under compulsory licenses for export without the patent holder's permission.

Notably, on December 6, 2021, Presidents Shavkat Mirziyoyev of Uzbekistan and Qosim-Jomart Toqayev of Kazakhstan signed a declaration of alliance relations in Nur-Sultan (now Astana).
