Accordingly, relying on views from both sides, journalists have traced the past 20 years of diplomatic relations between our two friendly states. High ranking officials have also given their assessments of these relations — such as Belarus’ Deputy Prime Minister and Co-chair of the Chinese-Belarusian Commission for Trade and Economic Co-operation, Anatoly Tozik, and Belarus’ Foreign Minister, Sergei Martynov. Meanwhile, China’s Foreign Minister, Yang Jiechi, describes the definite content of the bilateral relations. China’s Vice Minister for Commerce, the deputy representative of international trade negotiations, Zhong Shan — who also co-chairs the Chinese-Belarusian Commission for Trade and Economic Co-operation, shares his views, as do ambassadors from both countries, accredited in Minsk and Beijing.
