Moldova president’s visit to Belarus ‘above all expectations’

VITEBSK, 13 July (BelTA) – The visit to Belarus exceeded all the expectations. Moldova President Igor Dodon made the statement as he met with Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko on 13 July, BelTA has learned.

Igor Dodon said: “One day and a half allowed me to touch everything I’ve seen on television. I had certain expectations but everything I’ve seen exceeds them.”

Igor Dodon is accompanied by a large delegation, advisors on various matters during the visit to Belarus. “There are good ideas concerning industrial enterprises and agriculture. I think after this working visit we will be able to take our bilateral relations to the next level,” the Moldovan head of state was convinced.

Igor Dodon admitted that before coming to Belarus he had read a lot about Belarusian enterprises, had seen TV coverage and was able to see everything with his own eyes the other day. “I am very glad that you have managed to preserve it and raise it to a new level,” stressed the Moldovan head of state. “We can learn from you. I say it honestly and openly. I’ve seen enterprises in the European Union but we can only dream about the level of the manufacturing sector in Belarus for now. We intend to take joint projects to a deeper level in some areas.”

The Moldovan head of state also praised Belarus’ efforts to preserve memory of the victims of the Great Patriotic War. “We share the victory. One third of the Belarusian nation gave their lives so that we could win the Great Patriotic War together,” he stressed.

Igor Dodon said that various attempts are taken in Moldova to rewrite history and even rename Victory Day into Europe Day. “We will and we should protect 9 May for our children and grandchildren. Everything related to the Great Patriotic War is sacred for us,” stated the Moldova president.
