Lukashenko announces big projects in culture, sport with China  

MINSK, 25 June (BelTA) – We are going to launch big projects of cooperation in culture and sport between Belarus and China, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he met with Party Secretary of Peking University Hao Ping and representatives of other Chinese universities on 25 June, BelTA has learned.

"We appreciate this visit very much. It is taking place in the run up to the 80th anniversary of the liberation of Belarus from the Nazi invaders. China’s military have always taken part in our military parades. We are very grateful to you for always responding to our requests and taking part in various kinds of cultural events. We will repay in kind. We are preparing a big program that will see our young people come to China and present not only Belarusian culture but also the entire Slavic culture in the People's Republic of China. I think we will do this in the near future," the Belarusian leader said.

As for sport, Aleksandr Lukashenko said that he is willing to implement the project, which the parties agreed on during his visit to Peking University in December 2023, as soon as possible.

"We agreed to build a sports center at Peking University with the help of Belarus. I am convinced that I will find time to come to you again and present Belarusian sports, including hockey, at a higher level. We are willing to cooperate with you. We want the Chinese to play hockey at the level of world teams, although you have already begun playing hockey in the KHL. We play in this league too," the president said. 

"We would like to leave a more profound mark on the development of culture and sport in China," Aleksandr Lukashenko added.
