Belarus counts on France’s support in building multiple-vector policy

MINSK, 13 December (BelTA) – Belarus counts on the support of France in building the multiple-vector policy, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said as he received credentials from foreign ambassadors on 13 December, BelTA has learned.

“It is hard to overestimate the role of France as one of the political and economic heavy hitters in the European Union and in the whole world. We hope that the French Republic will support our commitment to the multiple-vector foreign policy and a big involvement of the country in the international economic relations,” the Belarusian leader said.

The success of world-famous French companies on the Belarusian market is a bright testimony to the excellent prospects of bilateral cooperation. “We hope that by joint efforts we will be able to implement new mutually beneficial investment projects,” Alexander Lukashenko said.

“We pay special attention to the cooperation with the countries of the European Union promoting the constructive idea of ‘the integration of integrations’. In this respect, we, first of all, put hopes on our neighbors,” the head of state remarked.

In his words, Lithuania is an important foreign economic partner in Europe for Belarus. “We maintain productive cooperation in transport, transit, and investment. We need to make more progress in this field and use the existing potential in full,” he said.

The Belarusian side is always open for the fruitful dialogue with Finland. “The attraction of investments and the use of modern Finnish technologies in the modernization of Belarusian enterprises is of special importance for Belarus. We, in turn, are ready to create all necessary conditions for business projects with the participation of your companies,” the President noted.

Belarus is ready to expand all-round contacts, including the political, trade, and economic cooperation, with Estonia. “Today it is needed to focus on new promising areas of cooperation. Cooperation avenues are many, and we must have very close relations,” the Belarusian leader believes.

“Our country is interested in the pragmatic interaction with Luxembourg in all aspects of bilateral, regional, and global cooperation. Taking into account the status of Luxembourg as one of the financial centers in Europe, we are interested in bolstering contacts, in the economy, first of all, in credit and investment,” Alexander Lukashenko added.

The President received the credentials from the ambassadors of Burkina Faso, Indonesia, Canada, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mongolia, Finland, France, Eritrea, Estonia, and from the Apostolic Nuncio to Belarus.
