Kazakh company Digital TV has started broadcasting the XJTV-3 TV channel in Kazakhstan, focusing on the 1.5 million Kazakhs residing in China. Director General of the company Oleg Chumakov spoke about the programmes of the new TV channel. First of all, it is important to inform the viewers of life of ethnic Kazakhs abroad, he stressed. Journalists pay attention to the fact that Kazakhstani compatriots, living in foreign countries, manage to preserve their native language, religion and unique culture, and observe the customs and traditions of their ancestors. Owing to the new channel cooperation and cultural exchange between both countries will strengthen.

The XJTV-3 TV channel has broadcast since 1997 in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, China on the whole and Central Asian countries.
