Belarus president in favor of major CIS space exploration project

MINSK, 28 October (BelTA) – It is possible to implement a major space exploration project by pooling resources of the CIS states for the sake of producing tangible scientific, practical, and economic results. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the statement on 28 October as he met with heads of the government delegations of the Eurasian Economic Union and CIS member states, BelTA has learned.

The head of state said: “Our scientists view cooperation in researching and using outer space for peaceful purposes as a factor conducive to the development of scientific, technical, and innovative cooperation. Such cooperation could rely on a major joint space exploration project to be implemented by pooling resources of the CIS states for the sake of producing tangible scientific, practical, and economic results.”

In his words, providing the domestic markets with strategic raw materials, including energy resources, is an important direction of cooperation. “It is necessary to update and mutually adjust the national energy programs of our countries. We need cooperation in power engineering. We need to introduce new technologies and increase the share of alternative energy resources,” said the President. “Continuing cooperation in food security is important. It is necessary to take joint steps to bolster the competitive ability of our agribusiness industries on foreign markets and resolve problems with domestic food trade.”

According to the head of state, it is necessary to harmonize requirements for the safety and quality of agricultural products, including the use of non-discriminatory forms of monitoring and oversight, the development of exchange of lab test information, and the joint detection of cases when the veterinary welfare of territories is affected.
