It has long been known that the territory of Kazakhstan is located at the junction of nine roads, which have become a mutual cooperation of civilizations and cultures. A branch of the Great Silk Road passed through the steppes of Kazakhstan. Even then, Kazakhstan was a golden bridge connecting East and West with the revival of trade and cultural ties.

It can be said that the peaceful position of Kazakhstanis was formed not as a result of global social experiments of the XX century, but as a result of correct historical steps. Today, representatives of different nationalities and religions gathered in the Kazakh steppe, who identified peace and friendship as the main conditions for their development path.
