MINSK, 17 March (BelTA) – An honorary consulate of the United Mexican States in Belarus opened in Minsk, BelTA has learned.
“The opening of the consulate will contribute to the development of trade and economic cooperation and will give an opportunity to the people of the two countries to learn more about each other, about culture, history and traditions of the two nations,” Honorary Consul of Mexico in Belarus Yuri Morozov said.
Mexican Ambassador in Russia and concurrently to Belarus Mr Ruben Alberto Beltran Guerrero emphasized that the relations with Belarus are very important for Mexico. He said that the opening of the Honorary Consulate will enable the two countries to continue to work in three main areas.

The third area, which is regarded as a priority in the bilateral relations, is tourism. “We would like to see more of our Belarusian friends visit Mexico and take advantage of the opportunities that we offer for holidaying,” the Ambassador said.
