Belarus, Kyrgyzstan considering exchange of visits at supreme level

Belarus, Kyrgyzstan considering exchange of visits at supreme level

MINSK, 25 February (BelTA) – Belarus and Kyrgyzstan are looking into the possibility of exchanging visits at the supreme level, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Kyrgyzstan to Belarus Kubanychbek Оmuraliev told the media on 25 February, BelTA has learned.

According to the diplomat, the recent meetings between the heads of state and government of Belarus and Kyrgyzstan have been mainly held in multilateral format as part of large-scale international events of the EEC, the CIS, the CSTO, and the SCO. “We have been actively working within these integration associations,” the ambassador said.

One of such meetings took place in June 2018 during the SCO heads of state summit in Bishkek. As for the bilateral relations, the ambassador announced the future exchange of visits by the heads of state: “We are working on the future official exchange of visits. The one may take place at the end of the year.”

Kubanychbek Оmuraliev stressed that Kyrgyzstan lauds Belarusian industrial products most of all. “We believe that Belarus has a well-developed industry, especially its agricultural and utilities machinery. These products make up the bulk of the exports,” he said.

In 2018, Kyrgyzstan purchased $120.3 million worth of Belarusian products. The supplies of Kyrgyzstan products to Belarus made up $10.6 million. “Despite Kyrgyzstan’s trade deficit, this does not mean unilateral trade. It is mutually beneficial as well-known Belarusian tractors and other agricultural machinery were supplied back in the Soviet times,” the ambassador said. In his words, the current situation proves the high quality of Belarusian products and their popularity.
