Belarus president invites Uralkali to discuss further strategy

MINSK, 18 April (BelTA) – Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko has invited the Russian company Uralkali to discuss what should be done in the interests of companies and the two countries. Alexander Lukashenko made the relevant statement as he met with Dmitry Mazepin, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors of OAO Uralkali, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Uralchem Group, on 18 April, BelTA has learned.

Alexander Lukashenko received Dmitry Mazepin upon the latter’s request. “To some degree it is a special historic meeting after what has been going on in relations with former shareholders of your company,” said the President. “Your coming here to discuss the problems that might exist in relations between our companies today is important. Some bad feelings might even still linger in relations between the states”.

“Now we should consult and decide how we will live from now on, how we will act in the future,” the head of state is convinced. “Today we are convinced that the things that have happened on the potash market have not benefited anyone at least. We assumed so in our time,” said Alexander Lukashenko.

The President stressed he was ready to discuss all issues and give “totally sincere answers without any diplomacy, there is nothing to hide here”. “We have to make up our minds about how we will act later on in the interests of our companies and our states. We are ready to discuss these matters. You know some fundamental views of ours, we have never tried to hide them. I think we will be able to sincerely talk, share opinions about the situation around us, particular, Ukraine’s factor and the destabilization of the situation in the western region, how it influences and will influence your and our interests in the near future,” said the head of state.

“But most of all we and you should recover from the mess with the least losses and should get some dividends instead of constant losses from the situation because a business has to earn money and should be beneficial for you and our company, our state,” said the President.
