International respect for Belarus on the rise

International respect for Belarus on the riseMINSK, 20 December (BelTA) – Belarus is bolstering its authority in the international scene. Chairman of the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus Mikhail Myasnikovich made the statement as he closed a session of the Council on 20 December.

This year the Council of the Republic of the National Assembly of Belarus has successfully arranged a responsible international event in the format of multilateral cooperation — a session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Central European Initiative. The session took place on 28 November. Belarus presided over the organization in 2017. “We are happy that everything went rather well. Many heads and members of the delegations said they’d rediscovered Belarus,” noted Mikhail Myasnikovich. “Without a shadow of a doubt, it makes international respect for Belarus stronger. It creates a good foundation for partnership relations with the European Union.”

“Thanks to such large-scale events Belarus consistently and convincingly presents itself as a country that takes care of stability and security in Europe,” stressed Mikhail Myasnikovich.

The head of the upper chamber of the Belarusian parliament also pointed out expanding interparliamentary ties — both in terms of their number and the scale of joint tasks. Minsk has successfully welcomed delegations representing the parliaments of Azerbaijan, Georgia, Latvia, Moldova, Serbia, and France. The agenda was primarily focused on further advancement of trade, economic, investment, and interparliamentary cooperation. A Belarusian parliament delegation took part in events of the CIS Interparliamentary Assembly and the Inter-Parliamentary Union in Saint Petersburg. Belarusian MPs held over 20 bilateral meetings on the sidelines of these important events.

Work is in progress to welcome delegations representing the parliaments of Bulgaria, Italy, Kyrgyzstan, Malaysia, Turkey, and Czechia in Belarus. Belarusian parliamentarians intend to visit Israel, China, Latvia, Pakistan, Poland, and Serbia. “Foreign MPs show a strong interest in Belarus and in the work of the parliamentary dimension. We have to produce more results,” stressed Mikhail Myasnikovich.
