Belarus, Pakistan interested in efficient and mutually beneficial cooperation

MINSK, 10 August (BelTA) – Belarus and Pakistan are eager to develop efficient and mutually beneficial cooperation, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said during the extended talks with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on 10 August, BelTA has learned.

Alexander Lukashenko stressed that slightly more than two months had passed since the meeting in Islamabad, and the sides have already made sure that the proposals to improve contacts between the two countries discussed at the meeting were timely. In June-July Pakistan welcomed delegations of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, BelAZ and MAZ, Belarusian Forestry Company and Belorusneft.

The President reminded that at the beginning of August Minsk hosted the first session of the joint commission for military and technical cooperation. The President deems it necessary to focus on cooperation in these fields. “We can offer a lot of things and work in this important sector together,” the Belarusian head of state said.

In his opinion, there are good prospects for the training of Pakistani specialists, and the delegation led by secretary of the Pakistan government for education and professional training Muhammad Tajwar saw it during the visit to Minsk. Alexander Lukashenko believes that the meetings held in Belarusian universities will help increase the number of students from Pakistan.

The President also believes that the first session of the Belarus-Pakistan joint commission was the logical continuation of mutually beneficial contacts. In his opinion, such sessions should be held every year to bolster trade, economic and investment ties.
