Lukashenko: investment and co-operation projects with Zimbabwe to become basis for continued liaisons

Investment and co-operation projects with Zimbabwe will be the basis for continued liaisons – as noted by the President of Belarus, Aleksandr Lukashenko, following talks with the President of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Mnangagwa, BelTA reports


"We have held substantive talks today with the President – assessing the implementation of the agreements reached and also exchanging views on topical issues on the international agenda and troubled political circumstances that are developing in the world," the Belarusian leader said.

"We have discussed in detail the promising areas of co-operation between our countries, which has significantly intensified in recent years," Aleksandr Lukashenko added.

Belarus has opened an embassy in Zimbabwe and expects that a Zimbabwe diplomatic mission will soon start working in Minsk.

Aleksandr Lukashenko particularly focused on the agreement envisaging training of specialists in all areas of interest to the Zimbabwean side. The two leaders also agreed on the implementation of investment and co-operation projects in various fields, which will become the basis for continued liaisons – ‘in the field of industry, trade, agriculture, energy, transport and mining’, as the Belarusian President noted. “We also agreed that these contracts and the agreements that we have reached today will become the basis for continuing our co-operation," Aleksandr Lukashenko added.
