VLADIVOSTOK, 13 April (BelTA) - Governor of Russia's Primorye Territory Oleg Kozhemyako praised cooperation with Belarus as spoke to the media after his meeting with Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko in Vladivostok on 13 April, BelTA has learned.

Oleg Kozhemyako said that Belarusians are kin people for Russians, and distance is not an obstacle to develop friendly relations. On the contrary, it spurs interaction. Many residents of the Far East, like the governor himself, have Belarusian roots.

“These are hardworking and decent people,” Oleg Kozhemyako said of Belarusians. “If you have agreed with the Belarusians on something, all the issues will be definitely resolved.” According to him, the position of the Belarusian head of state on strengthening ties with Russia adds confidence: “When you have a guarantor, you understand that you should not fail and our people do not fail. Projects are implemented mutually beneficially across all the areas we worked in.

Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko added that Oleg Kozhemyako had a lot of personal merit in the development of successful cooperation between Belarus and the Far East regions of Russia. While he was still the governor of Amur Oblast, he came to Belarus, had an appointment with the head of state, and suggested cooperation in different areas. When he was in charge of Sakhalin Oblast, a large-scale project was implemented to build a dairy complex there using Belarusian materials and technologies. “I remember how they transported pedigree cattle by plane. We set it up and it is up and running,” the Belarusian leader said.

“It's all his merit that he focused his attention on Belarus then. We are responsive people, ready to work here and set up joint enterprises,” said Aleksandr Lukashenko.
