Belarus willing to step up implementation of joint projects with Iran, Lukashenka says
Belarus is willing to step up the implementation of joint projects with Iran, Alyaksandr Lukashenka said Tuesday while meeting with the visiting Iranian foreign minister, Ali Akbar Salehi, BelaPAN said.
Belarus has no intention to depart from the action program that was adopted, Mr. Lukashenka noted, according to the government’s news agency BelTA. “If it is the will of your leadership, we’ll be still more active in implementing the plans that we outlined during numerous meetings with the leaders of Iran.”
Mr. Lukashenka stressed that he viewed the current visit of the Iranian foreign ministry as an opportunity to evaluate the relationship between the two nations at the current difficult period and make a review of existing joint programs.
“I hope that you and your Belarusian counterpart will do this work and I will be thankful if it leads to broader cooperation between our states,” Mr. Lukashenka said, according to BelTA.
