The words were written by talented poets Zhalil Sadykov and Shabdanbek Kuluev. Now for a quarter of a century the national anthem is an integral part of our life.
Our anthem has become a national pride and national treasure. It has the main thing - love, gratitude and faith in our Fatherland. When the anthem sounds, our hearts are overwhelmed with a deep sense of pride and patriotism, we put our hands to the heart with love. Under the national anthem, the whole country celebrates the New Year, various events are held under its sound. The performance of the anthem during awarding of our athletes during international sport competitions symbolizes not only their victory, but also the victory of our country and all our people.
