Russia interested in military industrial cooperation with Belarus

MINSK, 1 April (BelTA) – Russia is interested in developing military and industrial cooperation with Belarus, Russian Vice Premier, Chairman of the Defense Industries Commission under the Government of the Russian Federation Dmitry Rogozin said as he met with Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko on 1 April, BelTA has learned.

Dmitry Rogozin stressed that the major goal of his visit is to see what else can be done in the military and industrial cooperation given the current situation in Ukraine.

In his words, it is important to continue the work which has been started. Dmitry Rogozin stated that several months ago the Defense Industries Commission held a joint meeting to discuss with Belarusian representatives the system of mutual stable cooperation in order “to make everyone understand how many years this work will require and to plan the development of the manufacturing sector.”

Alexander Lukashenko and Dmitry Rogozin also discussed the situation in Ukraine. According to the Vice Premier, it is a sensitive matter for him as he lived in Kyiv for some time. The Vice Premier reminded the Belarusian head of state that following the instructions of the Russian President he led a delegation of Russian industrialists in a recent visit to Ukraine. “We have toured the east of Ukraine, visited Kyiv, held fruitful talks and it is extremely hurtful today to see that all we had worked on with Ukrainian partners is destroyed by the Ukrainian side in an act out of spite,” Dmitry Rogozin said.

The Russian official stressed: “We enjoy great support from Belarusian industrialists, and the goal of the current visit is to see what we can do given the present situation.”
