MINSK, 20 November (BelTA) – Members of the Belarusian parliament are intent on tight cooperation with the Georgian parliament.

In his opinion, a lot of work needs to be done to advance cooperation in various spheres. More vigorous contacts via the friendship groups previously established in the two parliaments will facilitate it among other things. Vladimir Andreichenko said he believes that the heads of the friendship groups could put together roadmaps and plan their work using the roadmaps in order to establish tighter cooperation.

He did not rule out that Belarus-Georgia trade may reach $100 million in 2017. “Our cooperation has reached the stage when we have to determine some large-scale project, around which cooperation will flourish,” noted the head of the lower chamber of the Belarusian parliament.

Vladimir Andreichenko went on saying that despite the geographical distance between the two countries Belarus keeps an eye on the changes going on Georgia and the country’s rising authority in the international scene.
