Leaders of the two countries have very good personal relations. Last year Belarus welcomed the Indian President on the historic visit that gave an impetus to the development of our bilateral relations, raised them onto a new level. I hope we will reach even a higher level of trust-based strategic interaction,” Valentin Rybakov said.
