MINSK, November 1 (Itar-Tass) - President Alexander Lukashenko said Belarus was ready to counter the West’s attacks in human rights jointly with China.
“We supported and will support you. We’ll jointly counter the West’s attacks in human rights and other issues. This is well-known for us,” Lukashenko said at the meeting with head of the CPC Political and Legal Affairs Commission Meng Jianzhu on Friday.
China is Belarus’ strategic partner, the president said, adding, “Bilateral relations are being built since the first day of our independence. The foundation was laid in the Soviet Union times.”
Both countries have common views on world issues and “there are no problems in the countries’ positions. China takes the lead in the fight for creating a multi-polar world. We share its stance”, Lukashenko said.
The Chinese guest’s visit will open a new page in relations. “I believe that your visit will open a new page in the intensive consultations between the two countries,” he said.
The president praised the level of trade and economic relations. He said Belarus wanted China to make more investments in the Belarusian economy. “We’re grateful for your support by providing loans to many projects in Belarus. Of course, we want China to make direct investments in the economy and develop this trend,” Lukashenko said.
“We determined many directions for cooperation: we want to build an industrial park in Belarus where high tech enterprises will work. You can be sure and tell my good friend Xi Jinping that we’re committed to the spirit of relations,” he said.
