NUR-SULTAN. KAZINFORM – The People’s Assembly of Kazakhstan plays a pivotal role in strengthening national unity, believes President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, Kazinform correspondent reports.

Stability and peace in Kazakhstan begin with accord and equality, mutual trust and respect in the society, the President added.

Given there are many present-day challenges, Kazakhstanis need to further strengthen their national unity and statehood, he stressed.
