Embassy of Kazakhstan in the United States of America

    Brief Introduction

    The United States of America became the first country to recognize the independence of the Republic Kazakhstan and to establish the diplomatic relations with Kazakhstan on December 26, 1991. Both the American Embassy in Kazakhstan and Embassy of Kazakhstan in Washington, D.C., were opened in 1992. 
    Since that time, Kazakhstan had four Ambassadors to the USA, Messrs. Alim Dzhanburchin (1992-1994), Tleutai Suleimenov (1994-1996), Bolat Nurgaliyev (1996-2000) and Kanat Saudabayev (2001-2007).
