Your Excellencies and Eminencies!

Dear Mr. Secretary General of the United Nations!

Dear participants and guests of the Congress!

Ladies and Gentlemen!

I cordially welcome you on the blessed land of Kazakhstan! If something happens in the world only once, it is usually considered as a historical accident. When it happens two or three times, it is a law of history. But if more times – this is Great History! As­tana is welcoming participants and guests of the Con­gress of the Leaders of World and Traditional Religions for the fifth time!
