The first deputy minister stressed that all the honorary consuls have an indisputable authority in their countries and provide great assistance to Belarusian diplomatic representations abroad, ministries, agencies and industrial companies.
The two states have been developing cooperation in other areas as well. “The two countries have signed contracts on seismic survey and geologic exploration and have already implemented a number of projects,” the ambassador said.
“Unfortunately, we cannot say that the overall situation in the conflict zone is stable, this is why the trilateral contact group on Ukraine will continue doing its utmost to secure the timeless ceasefire regime in the future,” stressed the OSCE special representative.
“Various religions and faiths have coexisted in Belarus for centuries. They have formed a truly unique cultural image of our country. It is a matter of special pride and of the tangible contribution our country makes to peace and security in the world,” said Vladimir Makei.
The Belarusian delegation intends to submit a draft resolution on banning new kinds of weapons of mass destruction for consideration of the First Committee. Nikolai Ovsyanko called for adopting the resolution by consensus.
The honorary consul believes that the number of contact points in Belarus-Spain cooperation will grow larger in the future. “Many Spanish companies are interested in starting up an operation in Belarus,” he noted.
