Andreichenko: World needs uniting agenda like never before

Andreichenko: World needs uniting agenda like never before

MINSK, 2 October (BelTA) – Against the backdrop of disturbing developments in the world, the uniting agenda like the one proposed by the Belarusian president is relevant like never before, Chairman of the House of Representatives Vladimir Andreichenko said opening the autumn session of the parliament, BelTA has learned.

Addressing heads of diplomatic missions in the Oval Hall, the speaker noted that all of them made considerable contribution to the dialogue between Belarus and the countries they represent. “In addition to direct economic gains for our nations, the efforts to build trust and promote cooperation without political bias help us better understand each other at international organizations. This is a very important task today. In the light of some alarming events in the world, the uniting agenda like the one suggested by the Belarus president is relevant like never before,” Vladimir Andreichenko emphasized.

“We feel it in the air of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly. We appreciate the support offered by our partners. Another resolution of ours, which was third in this convocation, was unanimously upheld in Luxembourg in the summer,” the speaker recalled.

Vladimir Andreichenko noted that the idea to turn Eurasia into a place of trust and partnership is gaining ground. A case in point is the Meeting of Speakers the Eurasian Countries’ Parliaments. The speaker welcomed it as a fledgling but promising venue for a dialogue. The first meeting brought together only 18 participants, while the recent event in Nur-Sultan gathered 65 parliaments and 14 international organizations.

“We brought to the attention of our partners a new strategic initiative of the Belarusian head of state to set up “a belt of digital neighborliness”. This is a logical continuation of the Helsinki-2 idea and can be as helpful as the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons in protecting the world from modern threats,” Vladimir Andreichenko said.

The proposals of the Belarusian delegation made it to the final document of the meeting. “This attests to the importance of the issues raised by Belarus at the international arena,” the speaker noted.
