Press Secretary of the President, Berik Uali, told why Kasym-Jomart Tokayev does not celebrate his birthday, Kazpravda.kz reports.
“A number of media are asking me to tell how the Head of State celebrates his birthday. Last year we gave an explanation on it, I want to remind again. May 17 this year is a working day. President works according to his schedule. There will be no events in connection with this date, even the administration staff were asked to refrain from congratulating. For him, it is an ordinary working day, because it was not customary in his family to celebrate the birthdays of both children and parents, "Berik Uali wrote on Facebook.
As the press secretary of the President noted, there are already numerous telephone calls, welcoming telegrams from the heads of neighboring states and governments, heads of parliaments and international organizations. Congratulations keep coming in.
Kassym-Jomart Tokayev was born on May 17, 1953. Today he is 68 years old.
