US Deputy Secretary of Energy Visits Expo 2017 Astana

ASTANA – The deputy secretary of the US Department of Energy arrived in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, to visit an exposition focused on renewable energy.

“I welcome Kazakhstan’s decision to choose Future Energy as the current theme as the Department of Energy pays special attention to it,” US Deputy Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette said at Expo 2017 Astana.

During his visit, the US deputy secretary has met with Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev and praised the ties between the two countries, which this year mark 25 years of diplomatic relations.

“During this period, we have concluded the agreements in the energy sector, in the field of democratic partnership. Together we have been dealing with the issues related to the struggle against nuclear weapons,” the Kazakh leader replied.

“We are ready to continue our bilateral relations not only in the energy sector but also in other areas,” Brouillette said.

The US deputy secretary of energy also met with his Kazakh counterpart, Kanat Bozumbayev, and both agreed to increase cooperation between the two countries in the energy sector, particularly nuclear energy.

For his part, Brouillette said that both countries favor universal access to affordable energy and acknowledge the importance of open, competitive markets to improve energy security.

He added that the United States and Kazakhstan will work together on producing nuclear power that is more secure against proliferation.

Bozumbayev also expressed his trust that US sanctions on Russia will not affect Kazakh-US investments in gas and oil projects.

The Kazakh energy minister spoke of his hopes that the sanctions imposed by the United States on Russia would not affect the successful implementation of oil and gas projects involving both American and Kazakh capital, and that there would be no obstacles to transporting energy resources to world markets.

“I am glad that we agreed to strengthen our cooperation and launch a regular strategic dialogue on energy in recognition of the importance of energy sources in bilateral relations,” Brouillette said after meeting with Bozumbayev.
