MINSK, 11 August (BelTA) – Belarus and Pakistan are doing their best to enhance peace in Eurasia, Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko said at the beginning of the Belarus-Pakistan Business Forum in Minsk on 11 August, BelTA has learned.

“In this complicated time Belarus and Pakistan are consistently doing their best to enhance peace and stability in Eurasia, turn the region in the zone of sustainable development and prosperity,” the President stressed.

Alexander Lukashenko reminded that the recent talks with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif focused on the tremendous role and huge efforts of Pakistan in the fight against terrorism for the sake of stability in the region where the country is located. “It is very difficult to calculate, but it can be hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars.
