ASTANA (Kazakh Foreign Ministry) – At the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Netherlands Kazakh Ambassador Magzhan Ilyasov has handed in the document of accession notifying the adoption by Kazakhstan of the Charter of the Hague Conference on Private International Law, the press office of the Kazakh Foreign Ministry has said.

On Tuesday, 6 June 2017, the Republic of Kazakhstan deposited the instrument of accession to the Hague Convention of 23 November 2007 on the International Recovery of Child Support and Other Forms of Family Maintenance (2007 Child Support Convention).
