Kassym-Jomart Tokayev’s congratulation on the Christmas Day

Dear people of Kazakhstan!

I congratulate the Orthodox Christians of our country on the bright holiday of Christmas Day!

Going back centuries, this day encourages believers to turn again to the eternal values of humanism, charity and love for one’s neighbor.

Interfaith harmony is one of the most important factors for the successful development of Kazakhstan. We are building and developing our country on the basis of the fundamental principle of unity in diversity and therefore confidently look to the future.

As an integral part of our society, Orthodox Christians make a significant contribution to strengthening our Independence. Together, we will work hard to improve the well-being of all our citizens.

I wish all Orthodox Christians good health and prosperity!

Let there always be peace and unity in our state!
