Andreichenko: Belarus, Syria promote dialogue in many areas

MINSK, 29 March (BelTA) - Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly Vladimir Andreichenko met with Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Syrian Arab Republic to Belarus Mohammad Aloumrani in Minsk on 29 March, BelTA has learned.

"I'm happy for this opportunity to meet with you. During your tenure our cooperation has displayed positive dynamics in various areas. The Syrian Arab Republic is a friendly country for us. In such a difficult time, we maintain a dialogue in many areas. We held a joint meeting on trade and economic cooperation at the end of January and outlined the way forward for our work. I am sure that the MPs of Belarus and Syria will do their best to implement the plans that have been outlined," Vladimir Andreichenko said.

During the meeting, the parties discussed topical issues of inter-parliamentary, trade, economic and humanitarian cooperation. The speaker of the House of Representatives said that the Belarusian president pays close attention to the development of relations with Syria. This applies not only to the political, trade and economic, but also to the humanitarian cooperation. Under the patronage of the head of state, a project has been launched to host Syrian children in the Zubrenok summer children's camp for health recuperation. Over the past five years, about 1,000 Syrian children have holidayed there. We are also promoting intercultural ties and we intend to continue doing this," he said. "Our legislative bodies, inter-parliamentary groups play a significant role in strengthening cooperation."

"Today we are meeting with the Chairman of the House of Representatives of the National Assembly of Belarus to discuss the cooperation between our two friendly countries. Political relations between us are very strong and well- developed. We strive to develop cooperation in the economic, cultural, inter-parliamentary avenues," Ambassador Mohammad Aloumrani emphasized.

The ambassador thanked Belarus that supported Syria in the long armed conflict. "We very much appreciate the position of the Republic of Belarus that supported us at that time," he said. “Belarus is also experiencing pressure in the form of sanctions, an economic blockade. We have already experienced similar measures of pressure. We stand in solidarity with your country in confronting these sanctions. For our part, we will do everything to promote bilateral relations."
