U.S. congressman suggests enhancing diplomatic ties with Belarus

MINSK, 3 August (BelTA) – U.S. Representative for the 48th District of California Dana Rohrabacher suggests enhancing diplomatic ties between Belarus and the United States. He made the statement at the meeting with Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko in Minsk on 3 August, BelTA has learned.

The U.S. congressman said that the United States want to promote peace and cooperation in the region and between states all over the world. He hopes that these peaceful efforts will begin today and will be developed.

In his opinion, the enhancement of diplomatic ties and the return of the U.S. Ambassador to Minsk and the Belarus Ambassador to Washington can be the first step in this direction. This will be a good step, he believes.

Dana Rohrabacher noted that this is the first visit of U.S. congressmen to Belarus for many years. This period lasted for too long. Belarus and the United States should have exchanged visits more often. The congressman expressed hope that this visit will open up new opportunities for the bilateral relations.

Dana Rohrabacher said that the picture he saw in Belarus illustrates the efforts of the country to improve the wellbeing of people. He expressed hope that Belarus can be proud of many things and that there are many avenues for cooperation. Dana Rohrabacher said that he was ready to get new impressions in many years after the previous visit.
