Kazakhstan-Russia rail border control abolishment ratified

A document on the ratification of the protocol simplifying border crossing between the two countries has been signed by the Ambassador of Kazakhstan to Russia Imangali Tasmagambetov and the State Secretary and Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Grigory Karasin.

The Protocol of amendments to the Agreement between the Governments of Kazakhstan and Russia on legal regulation of activities of enterprises, institutions and organizations of the railway transport was signed in Astana in October 2016, and subsequently ratified by parliaments and heads of the two countries.

Easing border crossing will stimulate the development of business and tourist relations as well as facilitate contacts between residents of the border regions, Imangali Tasmagambetov said.
