MINSK, 6 March (BelTA) - Belarus and China demonstrate the desire to live, to work, and together find new goals for our countries, Belarusian Ambassador to China Yuri Senko said in an interview to Belarus 1 TV channel as he commented on the outcome of Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko's state visit to China, BelTA has learned.
“Our president is a great friend of China, Xi Jinping, and the Chinese side did everything to the highest standard in terms of protocol, in terms of compliance with all the attributes of a state visit. The whole of China saw this, and I am convinced that the whole world saw this. It emphasizes the nature of our bilateral relations. This is a signal to the whole world that we have partnership relations, that we have the desire to live, to work, and to find new goals for our countries together,” Yuri Senko said.
According to him, Belarus is interesting to China. “Belarusian goods, Belarusian export products do not need any additional advertising for the Chinese people. They know very well what the Republic of Belarus is, and the word ‘Belarus' means quality, ecology, very useful goods, especially food products. The Agriculture and Food Ministry is ready to increase trade with China. There is potential for this as we are increasing production capacity. Today we are talking about increasing the volume of production and, accordingly, we offer Belarusian products to our Chinese friends. We will see it by the results of 2023. Even January 2023 posted a 200% increase in the exports of Belarusian goods. I am also 200% sure that the results of these negotiations will have a tremendous effect and a great result,” the ambassador added.
