MINSK, December 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Belarus and Ecuador are ready to develop multilateral cooperation - from agricultural to military-technical relations, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said at a meeting with Ecuadorian Vice-President Jorge Glas Espinel on Monday.
“We have no closed issues and we’re ready to cooperate in different fields,” Lukashenko said.
Belarus is ready to start implementing the agreements, which were reached as part of the visit to Minsk by Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa in October 2013. “I think that you can decide what you’ll show more interest in. Then we’ll be able to start realising the agreements,” Lukashenko said.
The economies of both countries are interrelated and trade turnover must be multiplied in the near future, the Belarusian president said, adding “We agreed to maintain cooperation in 15 fields. We have good experience of such cooperation with Venezuela.”
Espinel said the visit to Belarus was being made on the instruction of the Ecuadorian president. “I’m accompanied by several ministers. Our task is to concretise cooperation between both countries,” he added.
