I would like to thank Belarus for its contribution to the OSCE activities and for everything that the country is doing to resolve the Ukrainian crisis, including hosting the trilateral contact group, OSCE Secretary General Thomas Greminger
During the meeting the sides discussed forthcoming top-level events as well as the advancement of Belarus-Kazakhstan cooperation in trade, economy, investment affairs, science and technology, humanitarian affairs, and other areas.
Alena Kupchyna said: “Belarus has considerable scientific, technical, and manufacturing potential. This is why we attach special significance to the implementation of joint projects in developing countries within the framework of the East-South initiative on encouraging technology sharing."
The discussions in Minsk are dedicated to digital technologies in the context of geopolitical security. Natalia Zhilevich noted that this theme was discussed during the Eastern Partnership summit in Brussels last week.
As the CEI presiding country Belarus is focused on promoting compatibility in Greater Europe. The motto fully matches the CEI's main goals, among which, Erik Csernovitz stressed, is offering a bridge between the macroregions made up of the CEI member states.
