MINSK, August 10. /TASS/. Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has invited Pakistan to develop military technical cooperation.
"In early August, the joint commission on military technical cooperation had its first ever meeting in Minsk," Lukashenko said on Monday at a meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who arrived in Belarus on a three-day visit. "I think it is necessary to focus attention on possibilities of our cooperation in that area."
"We do have something to offer and to pool our efforts over in this important sphere," he said.
Lukashenko noted that cooperation potential the two countries had could be better realized "outside the limits of purely bilateral cooperation." "Of special importance here are joint projects and mutual support within the United Nations and other international organizations," he said.
According to official data, Belarus-Pakistan trade in 2014 reached $58.2 million, with Belarus’ exports to Pakistan standing at $42.6 million and imports being $15.6 million. Belarus’ key exports include tractors, potassium fertilizers, synthetic fiber, and tyres. Key imports are rice, vinylbenzene polymers, fruits, food products, leather goods, and textiles.
