MINSK, 17 December (BelTA) – Belarus and Georgia have agreed to expand interparliamentary cooperation, BelTA has learned from the press service of the Council of the Republic.

On 17 December, Deputy Chair of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus Marianna Shchetkina held meetings with Deputy Chairman of the Georgian Parliament George Volski and Chairman of the Budget And Finance Committee, Chief of the Friendship Group with the Parliament of the Republic of Belarus Irakli Kovzanadze.
