MINSK, 17 July (BelTA) – Belarus would like to see the diaspora more involved in the country's development, Belarusian Minister of Foreign Affairs Vladimir Makei said at the opening of the 7th Congress of the Belarusians of the World in Minsk on 15 July, BelTA has learned.

“We are genuinely interested in the diaspora's wider participation in Belarus' social, economic, spiritual, and cultural development, in preserving and multiplying its traditions,” Vladimir Makei underlined.

By joint efforts we can do more to strengthen economic cooperation with different countries and spread objective information about Belarus, the minister noted. The Belarusians living abroad have a new experience that can help fulfill these tasks, he added.

“Everyone has their own view of the world and the country's development. This is fine. But everyone can do a lot to achieve the main goal: to preserve Belarus' independence and strengthen it,” the minister added.

According to various estimates, today from three to four million Belarusians are living abroad. “This is a kind of soft power. This is also a great power that can uphold and promote the interests of the Belarusian nation and strengthen its independence,” Vladimir Makei underlined.
