President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev today participated in the unveiling of a monument to first President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev in Nur-Sultan via a video call today, Tengrinews.kz reports.
The monument was erected at the National Defense University. Tokayev said the selection of the venue was a deeply symbolic act since the Armed Forces were established by the decree of Nazarbayev.
On July 6, 2020, Nazarbayev will turn 80. The day coincides with Capital City Day, which Kazakhstan celebrates as a national holiday.
