Belarus hails Uzbekistan’s achievements in economic development, interstate relations

TASHKENT, 13 September (BelTA) - Belarus hails Uzbekistan’s achievements in economic development and interstate relations, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said during the one-on-one talks with Uzbekistan President Shavkat Mirziyoyev on 13 September, BelTA informs.

“You had to deal with a lot of problems, objective and subjective issues in the country. A 33-million-strong republic is a huge country, and you need to provide for your people. You need to preserve, unite and guide different religious, national and other movements. Therefore, I’ve told you that we are keeping an eye on what you are doing. And we are happy for you, especially for building relations with neighbors,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

He said that he had recently paid an official visit to Tajikistan, and the leadership of this country had praised the achievements of Uzbekistan. “The elites of these states have a very high opinion about your policy. Therefore, I am happy that you managed to determine the real course for Uzbekistan. We are very happy for you,” the Belarusian leader said.

The president thanked Uzbekistan for the support of about 19,000 Belarusians living there. “You also support the culture of Belarusians living here. I am convinced that they do not and will not create any problems for you,” the head of state stressed.

“I came here to thank you for nurturing this attitude to Belarus and Belarusians in Uzbek people. We are very similar indeed, we are hardworking people. We would be twice as rich now if we could sell and present our products like Uzbek people. I hope you will teach us,” Alexander Lukashenko said.
