KAZAKHSTAN-ROMANIA : 20 YEARS OF DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS. A STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP KAZAKHSTAN-ROMANIA : A STRATEGIC RELATION by professor dr. Anton Caragea MA, FINS, EDA I shall mention only a few episodes of the past years showing the utility and the importance of this strategic partnership. In 2010, Kazakhstan was in charge of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe Presidency in a tense environment in which the Russian and American concepts over the role and even of the organization’s utility were exacerbated, the last high level Summit of OSCE had taken place in 1999 at Istanbul and no compromise for any new summit was to be found. It appeared impossible for young Kazakhstan, with its energetic but still young diplomacy to succeed this stunt. Since the very first hours of the new presidency, Romania showed its availability to support Kazakhstani OSCE reformation and organizational reactivation concepts by means of a new high level summit. Romania had the wisdom along with Kazakhstani diplomacy to proceed in the best possible way : a summit of the wise held in Bucharest in which with calm, diplomacy and especially with strong arguments, the European intellectual elites and not only, were convinced of the OSCE reform necessity and of the organization’s future preservation through a new summit. High ranked Romanian intellectual personalities such as President Ion Iliescu and President Emil Constantinescu took over the OSCE ideas’ flame and hence supported the OSCE reform. There was a clear test of how the strategic relations Romania – Kazakhstan functioned not only for the bilateral relation’s sake, but for the guardianship benefit of an organization with a notorious past, fallen in the shadows. I was proud when the planted ideas in Bucharest, February of 2010 blossomed in Astana, December of 2010. It was more than Romania’s voice: it was the voice of Kazakhstan and of a functioning bilateral relation. When the world was wondering whether the Kazakhstan presidency would be a success, Romania gave an intellectual and resounding answer: YES. Furthermore, at the Conference dedicated to 20 years of Kazakhstan independence in November 2011, the intellectual and academic Romanian elite under the guidance of natural leaders: President Emil Constantinescu and President Ion Iliescu knew how to place the conference’s importance on the 2nd position after Washington’s conference. These were other proofs of a working partnership. Moreover, on April 24th of 2012 Romania demonstrated once more its support for Kazakhstan, organizing the Candidacy support Exhibition for Astana at EXPO 2017. Thus, Romania was the first European country to do such a gesture, followed afterwards by Germany; I wish to highlight that Romania was the first country to support Astana for EXPO 2017.

KAZAKHSTAN-ROMANIA : 20 YEARS OF DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS. A STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP ROMANIA- KAZAKHSTAN : 20 YEARS OF STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP Emil Constantinescu – President of Romania ( 1996-2000) ROMANIA-KAZAKHSTAN : A STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP Romania sustained during my mandate, through my visit in Astana in 1999 and Nursultan Nazarbaev President’s visit in Romania in 1998, Kazakhstan’s successful initiatives such as: dismantling the nuclear exercise polygon from Semipalatinsk, the decision to renounce to nuclear weapons, joining the United Nations, integrating in OSCE in Europe in order to give a EuroAsian political dimension to the new born state. Today, at almost 20 years from all these diplomatic decision which proved acuity and regional, continental plus international integration desire, one can appreciate the stabilizing and creative role of the dense diplomatic activity in building Kazakhstan nowadays. Even after finishing my mandate as Romania’s President, aware of the enormous responsibility I have as opinion leader, I have continued to support the bilateral agenda by participating to important events for our country and Kazakhstan. Almost two years ago, I had the pleasure to hold a main speech entitled Do we still need OSCE : for what ? for whom ?, within the OSCE 2010 Conference. Kazakhstan Presidency, held in Bucharest February 24th of 2010. In November 2011, when the Conference : Kazakhstan 20 years of independence and prosperity was held in Bucharest, the biggest manifestation held outside Kazakhstan borders – excepting the one in Washington, I had the pleasure to remark in my speech Kazakhstan : 20 years from independence, the positive evolution over these two decades of independence : building a country, strong institutions, a successful economy, building a new capital, contributing to the general safety by abandoning the nuclear equipment production and becoming an exporter of security in such a difficult region such as Central Asia ; all these are important results, one could say impressive ones, which bring near more Europeans on the Kazakhstan model. Moreover I salute Romania’s decision to support Astana, Kazakhstan’s capital candidacy for organizing the International Exhibition in 2017, considering that this is a necessary step in re-establishing Silk Route, a resonant geopolitical project in the 21st century. Today, when Romania-Kazakhstan relations have reached a profound, solid and developed level while transforming the two countries in a role model for collaboration, I can only hope for further cultural, academic, economic and political efforts; everything that has been built in these 20 years will become a foundation for a strengthened relation and we shall not speak only about a strategic partnership but also of a privileged strategic partnership between our countries.. Thank you!

This is an ambitious project in which Romania and Kazakhstan find each other today as they were to be found during Middle Ages on the same road of transporting goods..This a cross-centuries link rebuilt today, focusing on the cultural values to be restored between Astana and Bucharest : cultural and artistic projects, exchanging ideas, `programs, supporting Kazakhstan’s candidacy for Astana capital at EXPO 2017, all these belong to the same big project of culture unifying people and civilizations. (..)Thus, on behalf of my mandate, we will make all the necessary efforts to finalize the already advances negotiations for achieving a Cultural Cooperation Agreement between our countries. It will be another proof of Romania-Kazakhstan friendship’s vitality. These are elements of an extremely strong and impressive cultural relation; however, I do not wish to speak another 20 years about the achievement of these past 20 years of exceptional cultural and diplomatic relations, although I do have all the necessary documents to do so! The central message I wish to send is our decision to continue using culture in building communication, civilization and dialogues bridges, to open knowledge windows and to leave the wind of friendship and cooperation to maintain fresh what we call the strategic relation: the relation Romania- Kazakhstan.
