MINSK, July 1 (Itar-Tass) - President Alexander Lukashenko said Belarus is ready to step up relations with Laos in all fields, including military-technical cooperation.
“Trade turnover between our countries is rather small. In order to increase trade turnover cooperation should be stepped up in all trends,” Lukashenko said at the meeting with Laos President Choummaly Sayasone on Monday.
The Belarusian president stressed that the countries were ready to cooperate in the trade, economic, scientific, humanitarian and military-technical fields. “This is related to all trends that the Laotian society shows interest in,” Lukashenko said.
The head of state noted that despite the considerable distance between the countries, nothing should prevent cooperation amidst globalization. “We should improve cooperation. We should determine ways to develop cooperation and it is necessary to move this way,” the Belarusian leader stressed.
The Laotian president said he considered Belarus its close and old friend, who helped Laos struggle for the independence. He noted that the visit to Belarus was very important because several agreements on cooperation had been signed. The agreements can be named as historical, the Laotian president said.
