    ASTANA, March 12, 2004. (RIA Novosti) -- The Russian State Duma and Kazakh Majlis, the lower houses of parliament, discuss the possibility of conducting joint sessions of committees and parliamentary hearings on separate issues.

    "These sessions will, most likely, be held during the State Duma autumn session," vice-speaker of the State Duma Lyubov Sliska told journalists on Friday, following her meeting with chairman of Majlis Zharmakhan Tuyakbai.

    According to Ms. Sliska, in the course of the talk held behind the closed doors, the sides discussed the issues of inter-parliamentary cooperation. "They include migration, borders, narcotics, terrorism, the strengthening of ties, and the two countries' economic integration," the State Duma vice-speaker specified and added that very good parliamentary ties between the two states are being established.

    Lyubov Sliska arrived in Kazakhstan to take part in the Otan (Fatherland) party congress to be held on Friday in Astana. Kazakh president Nursultan Nazarbayev, who is the party's leader is expected to make a speech at the congress.

    The policy programs of the United Russia party, whose parliamentary faction Ms. Sliska represents, and of the Otan party are close to each other, she said.
