Chinese Premier Li Keqiang arrived here Thursday for an official visit to Kazakhstan.

During his stay in the Central Asian state, Li and his Kazakh counterpart, Bakytzhan Sagintayev, will hold the third regular meeting between the two countries' prime ministers.

Upon arrival, Li said at the airport that as friendly neighbors, China and Kazakhstan have carried out fruitful reciprocal cooperation, especially in production capacity, which has played a leading and exemplary role.

China expects to further consolidate the friendship and mutual trust with Kazakhstan and explore for new growth areas in bilateral cooperation, so as to lift their comprehensive strategic partnership to higher levels, Li said.

Sagintayev greeted Li at the airport with a welcoming ceremony.

The Chinese premier is also slated to meet with Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev and attend the launching ceremony of a production capacity cooperation project with Sagintayev.

This is the Chinese premier's second visit to Kazakhstan in about two years, which demonstrates the high degree of relations and strategic mutual trust between the two neighbors, said Chinese Assistant Foreign Minister Li Huilai at a press briefing in Beijing earlier this week.

Kazakhstan is the second leg of Li's eight-day Eurasia tour, which started with Kyrgyzstan and will also take him to Latvia and Russia.
