President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev is awaited in Armenia with an official visit, Tengrinews reports.

"On behalf of Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan I would like to once again confirm the invitation for Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev to arrive in Armenia with an official visit," Armenian Ambassador to Kazakhstan Ara Sahakyan told the journalists after the ceremony of presentation of credential to Nursultan Nazarbayev.

The ambassador pointed out that Armenia viewed Kazakhstan as a friendly country and expects it to be balanced in its approach to the Nagorno-Karabakh problem.

"We have a highly charged and sensitive matter: the problem of Nagorno-Karabakh. The OSCE Minsk Group has been working on resolving this conflict for over 20 years already. The group is co-chaired by Russia, France and the United States. We believe that the format is efficient, and that the resources and capacities of the Mink Group have not been exhausted. Since that negotiations are taking a long time and no final solution has been achieved so far, we are expecting all the states, especially the friendly countries, including Kazakhstan, to take a balanced approach to the issue," the Armenian ambassador said.

The Minsk Group spearheads the OSCE's efforts to find a political solution to the conflict in and around Nagorno-Karabakh involving Armenia and Azerbaijan. It encourages a peaceful, negotiated resolution to the conflict.

He also added that Armenia would vote for the Kazakhstan representative during election of the UN Security Council permanent member. Besides, Armenia will participate in the EXPO-2017 that is going to be held in Astana.

The documents of Armenia's joining the Customs Union will be ready by May, 2014.
