MINSK, 25 February (BelTA) – The European Parliament is interested in improving relations with Belarus, Vice-Chair of the European Parliament's Delegation for Relations with Belarus Karin Karlsbro told reporters on 25 February, BelTA has learned.

Karin Karlsbro noted that the European Parliament delegation came to Belarus to study a broad range of matters with an ultimate goal of building better relations with Belarus. “We are interested in cooperation across three major avenues – democratic development, environmental conservation and international trade,” she added.

“As far as environmental conservation and the climate change are concerned, the EU is facing challenges related to the European Green Deal. We want this deal, which is a response to the climate change, to apply to the entire world. However, it is very important for the European Union to engage the neighboring states in these efforts,” Karin Karlsbro said.

Speaking about trade, she noted: “Trade helps build bridges, bring people and countries together.  The more we trade, the more opportunities we have to improve our relations.”
