MINSK, August 9. /TASS/. The Belarusian parliament is ready to develop cooperation with the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) in different spheres, Chairman of the House of Representatives, lower house of Belarusian parliament, Vladimir Andreychenko said on Tuesday.
"We have done a lot lately to develop relations between Belarus and PACE. Our dialogue has reached a new level," Andreychenko said at the meeting with PACE election observation mission led by Gisela Wurm.
"We should expand cooperation with PACE," he added noting that "Belarusian MPs should be more actively involved in implementing programs and projects in the framework of PACE."
