MOGILEV, 14 August (BelTA) – Belarus and India are interested to develop cooperation in high-tech energy, BelTA learnt from Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of India to Belarus Manoj Bharti.
On 13 August the diplomat attended a concert of classical Indian music in Mogilev to mark India’s Independence Day and the 20th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Belarus and India.
According to the Ambassador, cultural diplomacy helps expand cooperation borders between the two countries. Today Belarus is implementing projects in culture, education, science and high-tech energy in cooperation with India.
