Belarus, Poland to sign inter-parliamentary agreement in 2020

MINSK, 22 August (BelTA) – Belarus and Poland have plans to sign an inter-parliamentary cooperation agreement in 2020. The matter was discussed at the meeting of Vice Chairman of the House of Representatives of Belarus Boleslav Pirshtuk with Deputy Marshal of the Polish Sejm Ryszard Terlecki, BelTA has learned.

The draft agreement has already been drawn. It is expected to be signed next year, because this year Belarus and Poland will have parliamentary elections. Boleslav Pirshtuk called the agreement a logical outcome of the constructive work of the two parliaments.

Describing bilateral inter-parliamentary ties, Boleslav Pirshtuk noted that for the past three years Belarus and Poland established “very good, close and, most importantly, regular contacts”. “We have made significant progress,” he said.

The vice-speaker noted that the parties built good and trustful relations in international organizations, such as the OSCE PA and PACE. “All this naturally contributes to our rapprochement with the European Union. In this regard, Poland is a good link between the European Union and us,” Boleslav Pirshtuk said.

The parties also discussed investment, business contacts and joint projects.

A reminder, a Polish parliamentary delegation led by Deputy Marshal of the Sejm Ryszard Terlecki will be in Belarus till 23 August. The Polish MPs are to hold talks at the Sports and Tourism Ministry. There will also be a separate meeting with the National Assembly’s working group for cooperation with the Polish parliament. The Polish delegation will also tour Myadel District and Glubokoye District.  The parties will discuss ways to scale up inter-parliamentary ties, including via the working groups set up at the two parliaments, and to boost cooperation in trade, economy, investment, tourism and humanitarian field.
