Chinese journalist: Belarus is an exceptional country with good people

MINSK, 5 May (BelTA) - Belarus is an exceptional country with good people, Zhang Xiaodong, a journalist of the Chinese newspaper Renmin Ribao, told BelTA.

He said that the several days he spent in Belarus on a press tour was enough for him to feel the friendly attitude from the locals. “Your country is exceptional, and good people live here,” the Chinese reporter said. He stressed that the journalists were received by Minsk Mayor Andrei Shorets and Minsk Oblast Governor Semyon Shapiro. He added that he is going to write about his impressions when he returns home. The Chinese journalist said he will also write about his vision of the Chinese-Belarusian relations taking into account the implementation of large-scale projects such as the BelGee car factory and the Great Stone Industrial Park.

The reporter stated that he asked a question about the bilateral cooperation between Belarus and China at the meeting with Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko. “The President stressed that our states are brotherly and our friendship is strong,” the Chinese journalist said. In his words, the friendly relations between the leaders of China and Belarus add an additional impetus to bilateral cooperation.

About 40 Chinese journalists are in Belarus on a week-long press tour until 7 May. The delegation includes representatives of the Chinese largest central and regional mass media outlets. They have so far visited a number of companies, including BelAZ, the Hi-Tech Park, the agricultural companies Agrokombinat Snov and Ozeritsky Agro. The foreign guests were also given a tour of Mir and Nesvizh Castles.
