Belarus views Afghanistan as new partner for comprehensive cooperation development

MINSK, 14 June (BelTA) – Belarus considers Afghanistan as a new partner for developing comprehensive cooperation, Vice Speaker of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus Viktor Guminsky said at a meeting with Vice Speaker of the Senate of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan Farhad Ghulam Sakhi on 14 June, BelTA has learned.

“Belarus has never viewed and does not consider Afghanistan as a threat to our national interests. Although, some problems remain unsettled. First of all, these are drugs trafficking and illegal migration. But, in general, Belarus views Afghanistan as its new partner to develop economic and other comprehensive cooperation,” said Viktor Guminsky.

The Vice Speaker of the House of Representatives stressed: “It is with deep pain that we learn about terrorist attacks in Afghanistan. We will do our best within the United Nations Organization to promote peaceful settlement of the process. We sincerely wish peace and stability to the Afghan people.” Viktor Guminsky also stressed that the parliamentary delegation from Afghanistan visited the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus for the first time on 14 June. Farhad Ghulam Sakhi handed an invitation to Viktor Guminsky to visit Afghanistan.

Belarusian and Afghan MPs held their previous meeting during the CIS IPA session in St. Petersburg in 2006. Then the parties stressed the need to intensify trade and economic cooperation and establish inter-parliamentary ties.
