MINSK, August 6 (Itar-Tass) — The level of relationship between Belarus and China opens the way to develop space cooperation between the two countries, President Alexander Lukashenko said.
In his meeting with director-general of the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation Ma Xingrui on Monday, Lukashenko said Belarus was ready to develop space cooperation with China.
“We are ready to use China’s experience and its achievements in this field and propose our services in space,” the Belarusian president said.
In his words, the high level of relationship between the two countries opens the way to maintain interaction in all fields and on all tracks, “primarily in such areas as space”.
Lukashenko said Belarus and China cooperated in high tech and achieved certain progress. “This is only the beginning. We have big prospects,” he said, adding that Belarusians riveted much attention to space cooperation because the country had a good experience and the sufficient number of specialists and because “we cannot represent our national security without the development of space technology”.

The CASTC director-general said Belarus supplied very good equipment to Belarus in the field of the Earth remote probing. “We hope that cooperation will reach a higher level for the sake of both peoples and for the peaceful exploration of outer space,” he said.
