ASTANA, February 29, 2004 (RIA Novosti correspondent Alisher Niyazov) - President Ilkham Aliyev of Azerbaijan will pay a state visit to Kazakhstan on March 1-2. Mr Aliyev's visit agenda will be dominated by bilateral relations issues, the Kazakh president's press office said Sunday.

On Monday, Mr Aliyev will meet with the host country's President, Nursultan Nazarbayev. The presidents will sign a series of bilateral agreements at the meeting. Apart from that, the Azerbaijani leader will hold a meeting with Kazakh Senate Speaker Oralbai Abdykarimov.

On Tuesday, the president will meet with Kazakh Prime Minister Danial Akhmetov and the staff of the Lev Gumilev Eurasian National University, visit the presidential culture center and an independence monument. He will be shown the new Kazakh capital's development plan, and lay flowers to the monument to the defenders of the fatherland.

Experts believe the two leaders will also discuss a new status for the Caspian and the possibility of exporting certain amount of Kazakhstan's Tengiz oil initially in tankers and further on through the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline to be laid on the Caspian bottom, although these issues have not been put on the official visit agenda.
