    MOSCOW, January 16 (RIA Novosti) - Defense Minister of Kazakhstan, Mukhtar Altynbayev will arrive in Moscow on Friday to discuss a broad range of questions of military cooperation.

    The embassy of Kazakhstan in Moscow reported that the program of the minister's visit to Moscow includes his meetings with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov and also with high-ranking officials of the Russian government and the Russian military-industrial complex.

    The main theme at the negotiations will be the strengthening of military cooperation, the embassy spokesman said.
