MINSK, October 2 (Itar-Tass) - Belarus’ parliament has ratified an agreement with China on the status of military units, which are currently deploying on the territory of both countries to conduct the joint exercises and training.
“The agreement will allow the parties to strengthen military cooperation,” Belarusian Defense Minister Yuri Zhadobin said.
Earlier, Belarus signed such agreements with the CSTO countries, he added.
The ratification of the document will facilitate the development of Belarusian-Chinese strategic partnership and maintain combat readiness at the high level “in order to adequately react to new challenges and threats”, the Belarusian minister said.
The agreement also envisions “legal and social maintenance of the activity of military units, which are temporarily deploying on the territory of other party to conduct joint exercises and training”.
Zhadobin said Belarus and China had created a rather good base to develop relations in the military and military-technical fields.
“Of course, we show interest in China’s experience to counter terrorism and to take part in peacekeeping operations under the U.N. auspices,” the Belarusian minister said.
