«We are keen to give a huge impulse to cooperation in the sphere of healthcare between our countries and propel this cooperation to a new level,» Tsoi said.

He proposed to step up bilateral cooperation in healthcare in such areas as development of medical personnel, medical education and science, pharmaceutical science, medical tourism, e-healthcare and many other areas.

Ahmad Osmani, in turn, thanked his Kazakhstani colleague for the meeting and expressed interest in the development of bilateral partnership.

Following the results of the meeting, the sides signed the Memorandum of Mutual Understanding between the Ministry of Healthcare of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Ministry of Public Health of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.
