Hossein Entezami: Belarus plays a bigger role in the region

MINSK, 24 October (BelTA) – Belarus plays a very important role in the region, Hossein Entezami, Deputy Head of the Media Department at the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance of Iran, told BelTA.

“We can say for sure that Belarus has played a huge role in the regulation of the Ukrainian crisis and has significantly enhanced its authority on the international arena,” he said. “At present your country has a strong influence on global processes.”

According to Hossein Entezami, Belarus and Iran are similar because of their peace-loving foreign policy. “The situation is as follows: everything can change very quickly. The activities of international regional organizations become more and more important. At the same time, it is obvious that even one person, one state can play a big role and have a considerable impact on the development of international relations. And the size of the state does not matter. The country can be rather small,” he said.

According to Hossein Entezami, Iran sees good prospects for the bilateral mutually beneficial cooperation with every state and prefers to be partners with the states which have been maintaining friendly relations with Iran in the period of sanctions. He believes that there are good prospects for the comprehensive development of cooperation between Belarus and Iran.
