French prez Macron to visit Kazakhstan on Wed


 French President Emmanuel Macron will pay a visit to Kazakhstan on Wednesday for the first leg of his two-day tour in Central Asia, which will also include Uzbekistan.

Macron is expected to meet with Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev to discuss bilateral, regional, and international affairs.

The discussion is expected to be dominated by trade and economic cooperation, especially energy, between France and the uranium-rich Central Asian country that is commonly viewed as a close ally of Russia.

Macron’s visit is taking place at a time when France is trying to juggle its vow to give up Russian energy imports with a dire need for uranium, which it used to import abundantly from Africa’s Sahel region before the recent military coups in its former colonies.
