NUR-SULTAN. KAZINFORM – International videoconference ‘Turkestan is the spiritual capital of the Turkic world’ is underway in Kazakhstan, Kazinform correspondent reports.
While addressing the videoconference akim (governor) of Turkestan region Umirzak Shukeyev stressed that the fact Turkestan has been named the capital of the Turkic world is a matter of historical justice.

He also praised the revival of Turkestan city which, in his words, has turned into a huge construction site. The territory of the Khoja Akmed Yasawi Mausoleum is being modernized as well as the territory of Khazret Sultan reserve and the ancient settlement of Kultobe.
