Belarus attaches close attention to constructive relations with Switzerland

MINSK, 5 February (BelTA) - Belarus attaches close attention to the development of constructive relations with Switzerland, Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus Vladimir Andreichenko said at a meeting with Filippo Lombardi, the President of the Swiss Council of States, Co-Chair of the Switzerland-Belarus Group of Friendship, on 4 February, BelTA informs.

The speaker stressed that there are no unresolved issues in the cooperation of the two countries. “Belarus attaches great importance to the development of constructive relations with Switzerland,” Vladimir Andreichenko said and added that the parties have a great potential for developing cooperation. “We are open to wide-ranging dialogue in any areas: politics, trade and economy, credit and investment, humanitarian affairs. A lot has already been done,” he said.

The chairman of the House of Representatives thanked the Swiss MPs for the constructive cooperation that was established during the 26th OSCE PA session.

Vladimir Andreichenko named the cooperation of the Belarusian and Swiss MPs in international organizations, the UN, and in the Inter-Parliamentary Union as productive. There are groups of friendships in the parliaments of the two countries.

A Belarusian parliamentary delegation is expected to pay a visit to Switzerland in the near future. During the visit, the parties plan to discuss a wide range of issues, Vladimir Andreichenko said.

In turn, Filippo Lombardi thanked the Belarusian side for its support in forming the group of friendship. Switzerland is interested in the group to include not only members of the parliament, but also representatives of four parties. The Swiss parliament is looking forward to the visit of the Belarusian delegation. The group of friendship will take an active part in the organization of the visit.

As BelTA earlier informed, a Belarusian parliamentary delegation led by Vladimir Andreichenko will visit Switzerland on 27 February – 1 March. It will be the first official visit at a high parliamentary level in the history of the diplomatic relations between Belarus and Switzerland.
