Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko met today on the margins of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council session.

Congratulating Nikol Pashinyan on assuming the office of Prime Minister of Armenia, the President of Belarus noted: “It is a pleasure to meet you and congratulate you on the fact that you have come out of the situation with dignity and, therefore, we are glad. It is very important that you hear from me what can be stated about our relations with the brotherly Armenian people and the State. I do not think that there may be or may ever arise any problems in our relationships. You have assumed a responsible position, and I wish you every success,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

The President of Belarus stressed the need for building on the ties of brotherhood with Armenia and expressed confidence that the bilateral relations will continue to expand in a constructive and friendly atmosphere. Lukashenko added that he had discussed the recent developments in Armenia with the RA President, after which the representatives of Belarusian mass media arrived in Yerevan to give an impartial coverage of events. “I would like to thank the President of Armenia and you. Our journalists communicated with the representatives of your headquarters and were able to get the true picture of events,” Lukashenko advised.

Thankful for kind remarks and best wishes, Prime Minister Pashinyan noticed that the Belarusian side, including the media, is deeply interested in the inner-political events in Armenia. The Head of Government expressed the hope that the cooperation with the President of Belarus will be effective in terms of developing close relations between the two countries.

Nikol Pashinyan highlighted the importance of bilateral cooperation in different spheres and noted that consistent steps need to be taken in order to boost economic ties and increase trade turnover.

“Trade turnover has grown recently between our two countries, but there is still great development potential. We must first of all work in that direction, as I can feel that the business circles are interested in the development of cooperative ties,” Nikol Pashinyan said.

A number of other issues of mutual interest were discussed during the meeting.
