Andrei Kobyakov said: “In order to further improve the efficiency of our cooperation, we suggest doing the following.

This is why I believe it is advisable to work together to determine several avenues of bilateral interaction. We suggest agreeing and signing a roadmap on Belarus-Afghanistan cooperation soon.” The program document will be important not only for the governments of the two countries. It will also become a conceptual guideline for Belarusian and Afghan businessmen.

The Belarusian head of government stated that in the last few years they have managed to bolster Belarusian-Afghan ties in manufacturing sector, agriculture, pharmaceutics, and have managed to start methodical work to expand the legal base of the bilateral relations.
