GOMEL, 14 July (BelTA) – Venezuela is open to any cultural projects with Belarus, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Venezuela to Belarus Jose Joaquin Boggiano Pericchi told reporters on 14 July at the opening of an exhibition commemorating Francisco de Miranda at the Gomel Palace and Park Ensemble, BelTA has learned.

The diplomat thanked Belarus for the warm welcome and the strong ties of friendship that connect Belarus and Venezuela. “I am happy to be here, at this solemn opening of the exhibition commemorating Venezuelan hero Francisco de Miranda. Close relations of friendship connect Venezuela with Gomel and Belarus. Our country will remain open to any cultural projects with Belarus,” Jose Joaquin Boggiano Pericchi said.

Oleg Borisenko, Chairman of the Gomel Oblast Council of Deputies, noted that the 10,000 kilometers separating Belarus and Venezuela are no obstacle to the friendship established more than two centuries ago.
