The Chinese and Kazakh defense ministers have agreed to advance cooperation between the two militaries, Xinhua said on Saturday.
At a meeting with his Kazakh counterpart, Adilbek Dzhaksybekov, visiting Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie said "military-to-military relationship is a key part of overall bilateral relations."
He said exchanges and cooperation between the two militaries were being strengthened across the board, adding that contacts should be deepened further and taken to a new level.
Dzhaksybekov said the two countries maintained a high-level of trust and held similar views on many regional and global issues.
Liang was on the last leg of a three-nation goodwill trip that has taken him to Pakistan and Turkmenistan.
